  • Who doesn't love money?! Super short, self guided tour via your phone. Money from the Revolutionary War to now encased in several wall displays. You can have the kiddos "print" their own money and see...  more »
  • The money museum is a fun little way to spend 30 minutes. It shows you the history of money through the years and the changes that were made to the currency. There is a nice little audio you can do on...  more »

  • Ok, its a museum about money, so calm down with the "its boring" nonsense. It is, however, interesting. We spent maybe 45 minutes walking around, got a bag of shredded cash which was pretty cool and then made our way onward. Its a good time. Def worth it if you want to get inside for a little and learn a little something.
  • Definitely not big enough for what I would have liked it to be, but very educational and a great way to kill 20 minutes in the area. Educational video, free "bag of money" and some nice information around the little area. Learn a lot, but not a place to plan the day around by any means.
  • We were visiting Denver from Florida and happen to see the Museum and wanted to check it out. My kids were super excited. We walked in at 3:44pm and were turned away because they don't take anybody in after a quarter till. After the encounter , we walked outside and saw a digital clock on the street that said 3:45 and we went back in to let them know and they still turned us away. We never make a practice of going to places late, but the Museum sign says 9:30 until 4:00 and no where does it say tours end at 3:45pm. My kids were so devastated. The gentleman working inside told us(disrespectively) to go to the one in Florida which is inconviently hours from our home and hours from where we're staying now. We are so disappointed !!!
  • They give you a free bag of shredded money. Have interactive things to do. There is a movie that explains the function of the federal reserve bank system..
  • Pretty small museum but great for kids. There's a case with 30mil! Definitely worth checking out!
