This museum was more than I expected. I really liked the educational aspect of it. I learned a lot about the economy. I especially liked the exhibit on inflation.

Accidentally stumbled upon this museum and glad we did. Lots of interactive exhibits for the kids to learn about our economy and how one thing affects another.
