The Museum of American Finance Invests in Kids' Futures

March 2008

Time Out Kids magazine, By Dan Avery

Aside from allowance negotiations (which, let's face it, are no fun), finance isn't a popular topic of conversation among children and their parents. This means that even in a market—driven city like NYC, kids can grow up clueless about earning, saving and investing cash. The mission of the Museum of American Finance says its president, Lee Kjelleren, is to educate visitors of all ages about entrepreneurship, banking and the market system. The result, if the museum is successful? Possibly, kids who can afford to live here when they've grown up.
