The first museum in the world dedicated to economy. Inaugurated on July 2006, it is organized in three sections: Basic economy concepts; Institutions and economy; and Growth and wellbeing. Other areas that complement its museology are: The Central Bank of Mexico, Inflation and the consumer products index; The flux of prices; The role of the government in the economy. Its objective is to encourage among the youths the critical thinking about the subject.

The premises of Interactive Museum of Economy (MIDE) have state-of-the-art technology, graphic design, and animation to offer information about economy subjects in a straightforward way: labor, capital, the distribution of resources, the opportunity cost, among other, subjects that are part of everyday life where money is not necessarily involved.

MIDE offers the impressive coin collection of Bank of Mexico, and the multimedia show: Voices of Fire. For those interested in knowing the long history of the building, there is nothing better than: Voices from the building, containing fragments of history spread across the entire convent, evoking the transformations of this space.

Located in the Old Convent and Hospital for the Poor and Convalescents of Our Lady of Bethlehem and Saint Francis Xavier, a work from the 18th century made by the Architect Lorenzo Rodríguez in the Historic Downtown of Mexico City, an area where there are other museums, such as the Palace of Fine Arts, Minal, The Palace of Mines, the Estanquillo Museum, among others.
