Museum of Capitalism

A journey through what is around us, to discover what it could be.

Welcome to the Museum of Capitalism


Capitalism - that's just like freedom, isn't it? But now imagine to wake up and capitalism is over. What has changed? Is our world a little better? What does it mean for the economy? Would we still work? And who takes decisions in the societies we live in? Let's discover it together. It is a journey through what is around us - to discover what it could be.
