  • 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.
  • 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.
  • It has a small but awesome museum. Two great films to explain the Fed, and everyone gets a free bag of money. The money is old shredded bills, but still a free bag of money is great.
  • A non governmental entity that has control over our money supply, and now effectively owns us as we owe more debt to it than there is cash available. It's the biggest scam in history.
  • If you love money I recommend going here. Free admission, security is tight but all in all great experience. Ive never seen so much cash in my life!

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.
