Intent of the MoneyMuseum
The MoneyMuseum aims to appeal to a wide range of people who are interested in social, philosophical and historical issues. Especially people who want to delve deeper into the development and the implicit rules of our monetary system.
The aim of the MoneyMuseum is to stimulate deeper analysis of money and to increase the public’s knowledge about how economic and social movements are connected.
Successful former exhibitions such as "Female workers in Zürich", "Worthless Money" or "Bitcoin" demonstrate the MoneyMuseum’s commitment to explore important socioeconomic themes, as does the permanent exhibition of "Traditional Means of Payment," with its rich assortment of exotic forms of money.
The MoneyMuseum is increasingly engaged in education to promote financial literacy in society as a whole.
The MoneyMuseum is an arena for discussions on topical themes like financial crises. We have even developed our own Crisis Barometer to track the development of these important periods of monetary and social turbulence.
