The Citi Money Gallery education programme draws on the richness of objects on display to offer a unique learning experience.
Students will have the opportunity to put their learning into context and apply their classroom-developed skills in unfamiliar scenarios. The programme links objects and themes with subjects across the Key Stages, with the underlying aim of developing an appreciation of money and an understanding of the social impacts it can have.
The education programme also includes learning opportunities for teachers and community groups, details of which can be found below or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Resources inspired by the gallery take the form of stand-alone activities or image banks.
Longer projects, which could be used for transition or enrichment weeks, and short activities suitable for tutor time.

The Citi Money Gallery at the British Museum is working with IMA Maths Careers and asking you to mathematically display how you would spend £1million.
Imagine you won £1,000,000. What would be the very first thing you would buy? How would you spend the rest of the money?
Onsite and offsite opportunities are available to support community initiatives developing financial awareness.
The Citi Money Gallery Education Manager teamed up with students from The Children’s Hospital School at Great Ormond Street Hospital to explore concepts raised in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Sessions are available to complement initial teacher training programmes; bespoke sessions may be available on request.
