Kids Zone at the Money Museum
The Kids Zone teaches kids about money the way they learn best: by doing and playing.
Through fun activities, interactive exhibits and FREE classes, children can pick up basic and advanced concepts - from how to make change to understanding monetary systems. The exhibits teach children about history, geography, trade, art, world cultures and more.
Can you match the State Quarter to its state? Guess whether or not salt was once used as money? How about name the different parts of a coin? Visit the Kids Zone at the Money Museum to find out.
You'll also explore the world's coinage and take home your very own world coin, play games like Bingo and Monopoly, design a coin to display for everyone to see, or just relax and read a story.
