Museum Opens Its Doors For Free Financial Education
Educating the Next Generation of Consumers
The free admission program kicked off with a visit by a 3rd grade class from P.S. 66 in Brooklyn to the museum, which is located at 48 Wall St. in New York City (the former headquarters of the Bank of New York). All children who visit for free on Saturdays will also receive a historical stock certificate from the museum, which also offers financial literacy classes for kids and a finance academy for high school students interested in a career in the field.
"We're trying to make finance fun and interesting for these kinds of kids," says David Cowen, the President and CEO of the museum.
