Tuesday, 17th May 2022 (18:00–19:30 UTC+1)
In April 2022, the Smithsonian will open a new exhibition called Really BIG Money. The exhibition is designed for elementary-aged children and features some of the National Numismatic Collection’s biggest objects – in size, denomination, and quantity – selected for their potential to surprise and delight young visitors. Created through a close partnership between curators and educators, the interpretation of these objects is shaped by existing classroom curriculum on money and economics with the aim of supporting classroom learning and improving financial literacy. Dr. Feingold will talk about the process of developing a money gallery for children and the ways which very large monetary objects can help children practice creative thinking and learn about the world around them.
Ellen Feingold is the Curator of the National Numismatic Collection, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution.
