Great little museum, well worth a visit. Not sure if everyone would find it interesting but probably good for most.

The Money Museum was free and very interesting to tour! We were fascinated to learn so many aspects of money and how our monetary system operates. We even received a free shredded bag of money when we left! $$

While in KC, a friend suggested we stop into the Money Museum. It was certainly an educational visit. While the museum is not very large, the number of displays and the amount of information about money and the banking system is impressive. Where else do you get to see $40 million dollars on display? It's certainly worth a visit.

This is a great and educational trip for adults and older kids. My 9 year old liked trying to lift up the gold bar... and making money with his picture on it. Looking at coins and bill throughout the history of our country was interesting too.

It was nice to have a view and tour of how the KC facility came to be and why it is named as such. Great displays of old coins and got to see how money is worked with in the vault and the robot that transports the money.

I can tell you people walk off the street to see the inside of the building not knowing the money museum exist. When they go in & come out with the biggest 😃. When you come please wish Officer Sikes a farwell because he is retiring Jan/16. After 10 years of greeting everyone and processing them for museum in pure... More

Interesting, educational, and fun for adults and kids. History, you get to see how money is made, and some fun, hands-on activities for the kids or kid at heart!

My 10 year old and I enjoyed our visit there. You really don't need more than an hour. She learned some new things and also really enjoyed some of the interactive exhibits. If your child checks out an ipad to complete the scavenger hunt - at the end you have to enter a "key" from the seal in order to... More

Not for kids, but kids are there. More for adults, in my opinion. Interesting, and free! Free bag of shredded money for visitors is pretty cool. Employees were friendly and were glad to answer questions or provide details.
