  • I didn't know what to expect when I went to the museum at the Federal Reserve Bank. My kids were NOT happy to be going to a museum, but I thought we should check it out on one of our 'snow' days. The ...  more »
  • Most Fed buildings you stumble upon will have a free museum like the one here in Atlanta. The nice part is that all the museums are slightly different (I've been to ones in Chicago and New Orleans), s...  more »
  • The whole building is built by marble, imposing, elegant, visible the Fed has a strong backing of the capital, deep pockets. After entering the door, to pass strict security checks, and to show the ID of the photo, all verified, issued to a listing, to put all the items stored in the storeroom, even small bags are not allowed to bring in, very strict. The U.S. Federal Reserve Bank is the world's most powerful bank, the world's largest dollar and gold place. The Federal Reserve Bank, in effect, consists of 12 banks and 25 regional branches across the United States. Although it was originally set up to stabilize and protect the American banking system, its current primary responsibility is to control inflation. A door to the hall, is to understand the currency story of the exhibition, a similar round of the exhibition Board, introduced from the first exchange of goods, to gradually develop into the process of today's currency. This is a world-wide exhibition, which even has the early Chinese copper, silver, and bank bills, very interesting. The next exhibition is to show the future of the bank staff, how to carry out the work. So for the future exhibition board. Focus on the 20-dollar display panel, showing how to distinguish between true and false currencies. A large denomination of money that lets people see the big face dollar you've never seen. In short, we can see all kinds of dollar samples. Into the inner room, through a half foot thick glass can be seen inside the staff pushing a car of hundred dollar bills walk around, the process of counting the money and so on. The process of money making and destroying old, damaged dollars is here. A wagon hundred dollar bill is about 3 million dollars. All operating procedures have no dead angle surveillance video, if someone wants to take away the currency to be destroyed, is desperate. Near the glass wall is a row of display screen, you can choose from the table of contents you want to know the problem, click, there are answers displayed. Can understand the American banking system, the important role of the Federal Reserve in the U.S. financial industry, learning ...

  • Very Educational. Learn About Your money. Free shredded money, but note this No Cameras, No Recording devices , No bags. There are lockers for your personal items.
  • Lovely landscape and environment. Has a beautiful garden around.
  • Amazing place for a free self guided museum tour. Every station is interactive in some way. Honestly, I was very surprised and my expectations were exceeded. There is even a few games you can play. You get to see the processing room - which is where bills are verified and packed together or shredded and taken out of circulation. You get FREE souvenirs at the end of your tour. Security is a priority and you go through a metal detector and bag check. Also, absolutely no photos are allowed inside but it was not a big issue for me. This is way better than some of the tours I actually paid for in Atlanta. Other reviews bringing this down disagree with the Fed. I do as well. Nonetheless it was a good experience. Their history portion leaves out some important points (do some research) and they are not very critical of themselves.
  • These are the assholes that are privately owned yet disguise themselves as federal. They are as federal as federal express and should be abolished.
  • Pretty cool but small exhibit. The two highlights were getting to watch millions and millions of dollars transported by robot fork lifts, and the gold brick you get to test for weight.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
