  • We didn't get a tour (either they weren't running, or we just didn't notice). But the self-guided walk-through was good enough. I'm a recovering coin collector, and the type-set they had on display is...  more »

  • Great information about the Federal Reserve Bank. Has parking lot on the west side. Bring your drivers license. Hands on displays are great for kids and adults alike. Free money!! To bad it's shredded. Neat display of coins starting with George Washington.
  • Took my 2 kids ages 6&16 to the FREE money museum on the non guided tour. There were a lot of other kids there bc it was the summer so it was hard to take time and look throughly at some items. However there were plenty of things to see such as the 27lb gold brick, $100,000 bill, the vault that processes over $4 million dollars per day and has over a billion in storage. You can make your own "dollar bill" in a couple of ways. On your way out you can take a bag of shredded money.
  • Interesting place- you'll learn a lot. Be prepared to go through a metal detector since this is inside a federal building. ID required!
  • This is a small museum to take in at the federal reserve bank. It's free. The Truman coin collection is really something to see. It's arranged so that you can see which coins were in circulation during each president's term. The best attraction here, though, is the automated trucks and cranes that move the money around inside the bank. Three trucks named Huey, Dewey, and Louis drive back and forth moving money from one place to the next. All automated. It's mesmerizing really. Totally worth the price of admission. And it's free.
  • Great museum. It's free. Plus they give you a bag of money bad part it's shredded cash 😊
