Fun for a coin collector

My father travelling with us enjoyed this museum as he is an avid coin collector. My teenage girls were not quite so impressed. It was a fun time though, free of charge.

What a great place for kids and adults. A must for coin collectors. And it's free! It's close to WWI Museum, Science City and Crown Center. Kids love the free bag of shredded money. Adults need ID. Parking is free and onsite. There is a small gift shop.

This is a great activity for families that costs nothing! There's a large display of the timeline of money, lots of history and some great interactive displays that keep the kids interested. It's small, but it ended up being one of the favorite things we did in Kansas City. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Nice free museum in Kansas City. Make sure you have ID when visiting. It is right next to the WW1 museum which is excellent. They even give you a free bag on money when you visit.

Very interesting and educational about the money and federal reserve. I liked we could go to nearby attractions in addition to this museum.

This was our second Money Museum tour, as we also had previously visited the facility in Fort Worth, Texas. In Kansas City, we pulled in behind a tour bus of tweens on a school tour. This will always determine how enjoyable a visit will be, as some school groups are polite and quiet and others are not. This group was... More

Neat to see Truman's coin collection and learn about Money, inflation etc. The gold brick exhibit was cool- you pull the lever back to feel how much it weighs. The best part was watching Hewey, Dewey, and Lewey move the money around. Then at the end don't forget your complimentary bag of shredded money.

Very interesting to see large carts of money being moved around, behind protective glass of course. One gets a brief history of money in the USA and learns what happens to old paper currency after it has reached the end of its useful life. Don't forget to leave with a bag of money (shredded bills).

See the 450 Truman coin collection which contains representative coins from the history of america. The video on the working of the federal reserve is informative and gives insight into its role. Visit here in conjunction with the nearby world war one museum...

We went to the Money Museum after going to the World War 1 museum. If was a short walk away and had free admission so there was nothing to lose. We were both glad we did it but would not have paid. Getting a bag of shredded bills one our way out was cool. Bring your passports/ government issued I.D... More
