New Exhibit Grand Opening JULY 9th!

The new Frost Good Cents Bank exhibit introduces kids to fun, hands-on financial learning. Kids can role play in a modern-day bank, comprised of a drive-up window, teller counters and an ATM. They can also explore fun, interactive finance stations to learn important lessons about managing and spending money.

·         Cravings and Savings: A spin of the wheel encourages children to add to their savings or give into their cravings in a fun activity that demonstrates how regular savings habits can quickly pay off.

·         Sharing: Using an interactive maze, children learn about philanthropy by choosing the charities they would like to support.

·         Every Last Cent: Children can explore the concept of spending power in a money-stacking game that requires them to make touch spending choices.
