More than 40 Victorian mechanical banks are on display in The Museum of Cape May County's gallery now through Jan. 19 as part of its newest exhibition, "Bank on It!" 

These exquisite mechanical marvels will take visitors back to a time when a penny saved was a penny earned and children were taught the lesson of thrift by depositing their coins into a toy bank. 

This exhibition, sponsored by Sturdy Bank, offers a child's eye view of the Victorian world. Banks depicting animals, magicians, birds, people and places are presented in "Bank on It!" 

In addition to the collection of banks, visitors will also be able to feast their eyes on a hand-crafted scale model of Cape May's Queen Victoria.  This dollhouse, completely electrified and filled with miniature period-piece furniture, is a delight to see.  Several other dollhouses from The Museum's collection are also on display. 

"Bank on It!" was made possible through the generosity of John and Sarah Turner and is free and open to the public.
