This is an interesting museum that imparts a great deal of information in a pleasant way. Not only will you be better versed on the money, but also the Fed. Security is stringent.

The first part of the museum is a little ho hum as it is geared more towards school age kids. The best part is seeing all that money ... millions and millions in bills and coins. You can easily see into the vault area and the two huge vault doors which are standing wide open. Inside the vault which appears... More

We hadn't planned to go to this place, but did it on a whim. It was very interesting, seeing how money is handled in the banking world. They had three robots, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, that transported large piles of money around to the different parts of the bank. At the end, each patron gets a bag of about $10,000... More

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
