City Money

Learn how money works in our financial literacy exhibit exploring the concepts of earning, spending, saving, and giving money in a context that makes sense to young learners.

A car and drive-thru window, teller station, and interactive money games make learning money educational and fun!  Playing in City Money challenges kids to practice basic math skills to become money smart!

Playing in this exhibit helps today’s children become the money smart leaders of tomorrow!


The City Money exhibit and all of our financial literacy initiatives are supported by our generous sponsor,
