How can you teach children financial literacy in a fun and interactive way? Visit the Miami Children’s Museum and walk through the Bank of America six-foot piggy bank. In this interactive exhibit, children can learn about the importance of earning, saving and spending money as well as the components of a dollar and making change. Additionally, a set of touchscreen activities lets younger kids practice number recognition, simple math skills and fine motor skills.
The new Bank of America exhibit, designed by Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership (New York), opened in November at the Miami Children’s Museum. Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership is currently engaged with MCM in a multi-year renovation program to refresh and realize new exhibits included in their 2013 Interpretive Master Plan.
NorthStar Museums provided construction management, Breeze Creative provided A/V design and production with exhibit fabrication by Lexington Design + Fabrication.
