Washington Mutual Partners with the
Museum of Discovery and Science by Sponsoring the New Moneyville Exhibit

Fort Lauderdale, June 15, 2004 – The Museum of Discovery and Science has joined forces with Washington Mutual to exhibit Moneyville, now on display through January 9, 2005. This new interactive exhibit is allows visitors to explore the fascinating world of money. The partnership between Washington Mutual and the Museum will help educate and entertain the public regarding modern and historical aspects of money and the economy.

Money isn’t just dollars and cents. The ancient Aztecs used chocolate for money, and Yap islanders used 500-lb. stones! So what is money and how does it work? Take a trip to Moneyville at the Museum of Discovery and Science and find out about the fascinating world of money. Take a tour of money’s many forms and functions, and discover how it has dramatically changed throughout history. See samples of currency from pounds to pesos, put your face on a million dollar bill, run your own lemonade stand, and even play the stock market. You’ll start to see money in a whole new way.
