The museum’s displayed the changing exhibition Show Me the Money from Saturday 11 July 2015 to Sunday 24 January 2016.  Learning groups can continue to book any of our Show Me the Money themed Learning sessions for their school or community learners.

The exhibition looked at how the financial world has been portrayed through illustration, photography and other visual media over the last three centuries in Britain and the United States.  It asked the questions: what does ‘the market’ look like?  What does money really stand for?  How can the abstractions of high finance be made visible?  Who is finance for?

Suitable for Key Stages 2, 3, 4 & Post 16 groups
