Museum of Saving
Italy   Learn how to manage personal assets intelligently
The Museum of Saving, located in the center of Torino, is one of a kind attraction both for tourists and local people. Its mission is to help people learn about managing their finances in a fun yet clear way. The museum is aimed to both adults and children and illustrates behaviour, habits tricks and hacks to save money.

The visit starts with an introduction to the main events of economic history (history and role of money, trade, birth of fiduciary loans, speculative bubbles, major financial crises...) and continues with an overview of the main characteristics of most common financial instruments (shares, bonds, derivatives, insurance, investment funds, pension funds).

The Museum is enriched by the mixing of economy, literature and cinema.

Through videogames and apps, it is possible to test management skills, by evaluating, by winning points, money management capabilities.

Put your financial management skills to the test in a number of interactive games designed for young children, teenagers and adults. You can see the consequences of your actions and test your ability in using money by looking at your final score.

Technology is used to create "impossible" interviews with bankers who lived centuries ago. Through technology the visitor meets, in a new dimension, famous authors (Dante, Molière, Shakespeare and Hemingway) and well-known film directors, who tell how they dealt with money.

Visitors can play with friends or against a computer to discover more about savings and risks, or watch video interviews with modern-day economists and boost their understanding of the history of money and how it can be used.

The Museum’s two mascots, the ants For and Mika, accompany the children along the themed tours with amusing cartoons.
