The 1st ACE Museum
Put a bunch of really old pieces of metal in a classroom and what do you get?   Ancient Coin Museums!! This is how the 1st ACE Ancient Coin Museum was pioneered by teacher Zee Ann Poerio at St Louise de Marillac school in Pittsburgh, PA.

Teacher Cathy Scaife's Ancient Coin Museum in KY Zee Ann Poerio's Museum in Pittsburgh  in the Spring of 2004 paved the way a few months later for the second ACE Museum - started by Cathy Scaife, at Lexington Catholic High School in Kentucky.   As a high school Latin Teacher, Cathy decided to concentrate her Museum Exhibits on various  curriculum relevant themes, and when she was picked to give the Ancient Coins section of the American Numismatic Association's "Coins in the Classroom" seminar, part of her Exhibition went along with her to the ANA in Colorado Springs for that week.

Wonderful donations for the first 2 ACE Museums

Berk In 2004, as the two ground-breaking ACE Ancient Coin Museum Exhibits  came into being - first in Pittsburgh, PA, with Zee Ann Poerio, and then in Lexington, KY, with Cathy Scaife;  these two teachers and their schools were the beneficiaries of numerous amazing donations by Harlan Berk.
