  • This a great museum in downtown Chicago, which is completely free. Of all the places I took my kids in Chicago, this was their favorite. They enjoyed learning how money was made and about the history of the dollar. They were excited to see lots of money all in one place and up close. While a smaller museum, it took us about an hour to walk through and see everything. I would highly recommend visiting this museum.
  • They have a really cool free money museum. We spent a decent amount of time here checking it out and learning. It was definitely worth the stop!
  • Free museum in downtown Chicago! It’s a wonderful museum that educates about the banking system. The exhibits are interactive so good for children as well. Definitely worth stopping by!
  • Excellent and it's free entry. You can see One million dollars at a time and you can take picture as well. It's nice and you can get history of US currency. Nice place to visit with kids.
  • Interesting place. Geared towards kids/teens, but still fun for adults. Free souvenirs for all guests. Nice place to spend an hour and get out of the heat.
