I enjoy the Museum Mondays, I had last week’s all ready to roll in my brain and then I got behind on another deadline and something had to give this time. Welcome back to Museum Monday.

Today’s museum was highlighted on March 27 by NPR it is the Museum of American Finance. Located in New York not far from the New York Stock Exchange (which also has some great educational materials), the Museum of American Finance is dedicated to the history of money and the role of finance in the US. Even with the focus on the US, the museum has been helping the public understand the current economic crisis. The website has a time line of the credit crisis that is able to be downloaded, topics of past exhibits which could be used by teachers for research or lesson topics, a PowerPoint lesson focusing on quotations of 12 finance “leaders,” and a great collection of finance-related links.

Happy Monday, here’s to a great week!
