Personal finance is the subject of an upcoming traveling museum exhibit, and Suze Orman, the broker turned TV personality and motivational speaker, has already landed a feature role in the show.

“Economia: Money Matters,” which has interactive components intended to teach personal finance, will be unveiled in Chicago next fall.

For instance, a gallery dubbed College Road will guide museum-goers through college-financing basics aimed at keeping students and parents from incurring too much debt. 

“Imagine learning about your money by walking through a museum gallery at your own pace and engaging with interactive exhibits that you can touch and feel,” Ms. Orman said.

“The goal of this exhibit is to make financial education a family affair and for everyone to emerge being the master of their own financial destiny,” she said.

Visitors more likely will remember what they learn because it will be entertaining, Ms. Orman added.

In addition to college funding, the 7,000-square-foot exhibit will focus on retirement funding, investing, saving and debt.

It will integrate financial literacy curricula for different age groups, including K-12 and college students, adults and seniors, according to exhibition designer and developer Gail Vida Hamburg.

The project will include a Suze Orman Gallery that “crystallizes and interprets Ms. Orman's work for the first time in museum space,” said Ms. Hamburg, who founded museum exhibit firm Rainworks Omnimedia.

The five-year exhibition will tour natural history, science and other museums around the country.
