It's quite interesting and free!

It's a good look at the history of money in our country, it's free, and it's a relatively short outing (30 to 60 minutes).

Learned about this museum on the trolley ride. It was so neat to see the collection of coins, be able to pick up a real gold brick and how money is taken out of circulation. This is a free museum that is recommended for all ages.

We walked over to the Federal Reserve from the WWI Museum (you can park for free and walk to both). After clearing security, we enjoyed the coin collection, the interactive social media Tagboard and views inside the vault. Be sure to get your free bad of shredded money. The security staff was especially friendly and helpful.

Very nice free attraction to spend an hour or two while in the Crown Center area of Kansas City. A half-million dollar bar of gold is on display, in addition to stacks of $100 bills totaling $40 million. There are nice displays to help kids (and adults) learn more about the Federal Reserve banks and our money system in general.... More

We stopped by the money museum at the Federal Reserve. If you have any interest in coins or paper money, you will find something of interest. We learned a little history, some fun facts, and walked away with a free bag of money (shredded). A few interactive exhibits ( you can get a bill with your face on it!).

This is a great family friendly FREE interactive museum. While it is a bit smaller, it is interactive with a great coin collection. This is a wonderful kid friendly museum, that can be seem easyly in two hours. They give you a history of what the federal reserve is, and everyone walks away with a bag of shredded money

Enjoyed. Small but interesting to have been free. Must have ID to present to security and go through metal detector.

We let each of our girls pick something to do this week, and our youngest picked The Money Museum. Our family of four enjoyed this small museum, and our girls' favorite part was getting to take home a bag of shredded money.

Our boys really enjoyed this - as did we. Very informative and lots to learn/see/do. They really loved the bag of shredded $ they received on the way out.

This is a great place to stop by if you just finished up at the WW1 Memorial. Interactive exhibit for the kids. The whole thing will take less than an hour to go through unless you are reading every single display. There are no money being printed here but there is an area where you can watch workers do their... More
