our our way through Kansas City my wife and I paid a visit to the money museum at the federal reserve bank...coin collection dated to Washington era was fascinating, as were the films and information re the work of the federal reserve...fun places for children as well.

I stumbled upon this place while searching for fun and educational things to do with the kids. Admission is free and it is engaging for all age groups. You even get a bag of shredded cash to keep as souvenir. It was fun seeing Louie, Dewey & Huey. =)

Not a very big museum, but then again it is the federal reserve so I imagine there not at liberty to just let people stroll all over the place. What they do have on display is very intriguing, and you receive a bag of shredded money upon your completion of the tour. Make sure you have a valid ID with... More

I thought this would be similar to the Canadian Mint Museum in Ottawa, which I found fascinating. I love learning about the history of our money and how it is made, handled and circulated. I was a bit disappointed. Heavy security at the entry, we brought our Canadian passports, and they took longer to clear them than other visitors, who... More

We all liked to see Huey, Dewey, and Louis move the money!!! You have to stop in to see what that means! It was interesting and it cost is no money. We got to see how our money changed over the years which I thought was interesting. Definitely worth stopping.

This was a very interesting place to visit. Learned a lot about the history of money! Coin collection was very interesting. We even saw a $10000 bill! Learned a lot about circulation. Not crowded, very laid back and enjoyable. Lots of exhibits that you can read, several interactive kiosks, videos to watch and a view of the employees sorting and... More

Was a very interesting experience. As it is a Federal building you need to ensure you have a valid ID to enter. Use the OR function of your phone to scan the code for a more in depth tour and more information. They have a gold bar you get to lift, you get to see 40 million dollars, and you... More

Wow, just look at all the paper our government prints. Really worth the visit to see a bit of our money supply, it is one of 12 such in the country. You can get a bag of shredded money, kinda cool. Be prepared for TSA type security to get in and try to count the surveillance cameras.

The video clearly explained the federal reserve system and the coin display was wonderful to see how coin has changed since George Washingtons presidency. Free admission, no reservation required but you need a picture ID to enter.

Well it was a tour of money & free - small, self-guided, fast tour. You could do it in 30 mins or take your time to do it in 60. This does not include the security check. It's like the airport TSA, except these guys have a sense of humor. Bring your driver's license or ID to get in. My... More
