Education Resources

The award-winning Inside the Economy® Museum is an ideal class field-trip location for students in middle school through college. Through engaging and interactive exhibits, students will learn what makes the economy work, how they play a role in it, and how the decisions they make today could affect their financial futures. Students can use our middle school or high school guide to help explore the museum.

For students in grades 5 through 12, the museum offers four interactive programs that are available to scheduled groups of up to 60. Learn more about these programs (pdf). To book your interactive program, make your selection on the reservation page (please note that interactive programs must be booked in advance).

For a more in-depth learning experience, the St. Louis Fed has a variety of ready-to-go lesson plans that you can use to enhance your students' learning experience. The lessons align with national education standards in economics and personal finance.
