School and Group Visits

We'd be happy to have your school, community, or summer camp group visit Money in Motion, but for groups of 10 or more, you must make arrangements in advance. Exhibit staff are on hand at all times to assist your group.

Money in Motion is free, and it's interesting and fun for young people and adults alike; however, we recommend that students who visit our exhibit be 10 or older.

We require a two-week window to schedule a visit. March through June are very busy months for school visits, so book your visit early.

The Philadelphia Fed is open to nonscheduled visits for individuals or groups of fewer than 10 people. Groups of no more than 10 people from an individual school will be admitted to the exhibit for an unscheduled tour. For questions about tours or other information, please contact exhibit staff at 215-574-7123 or toll free at 866-574-3727.

Lesson plans for teachers are also available.
