Inside the Economy Museum
The Inside the Economy Museum immerses guests in a one-of-a-kind experience that explains the economy and their role in it through nearly 100 fun, hands-on exhibits with games, sculptures, videos, and displays. The museum begins with an exciting introductory video set in the historic teller booths of the bank, and then leads visitors into the four zones that comprise the rest of the experience. Interactive touch screens and games teach guests how to make various investment and expense decisions, and the impact of those decisions on the micro and macro economy. The sleek and immersive space then carries guests to a stock-trading interactive where they can assume the roles of buyers and sellers and compete with one another. Amongst a myriad of other fun and educational games and films, the museum introduces them to the functions of the bank and how the major ebbs and flows of the economy affect them and different communities around the world.
No cent is too small. Whether it’s a penny or $1,000,000, every piece of currency in the museum is treated with the same level of exceptional security. Each student who visits The Inside the Economy Museum on a field trip departs with a small bag of real shredded money.
