They have an example of every coin ever minted. A pound of gold and money everywhere so you have to go though security and must have your drivers license. Very cool and interesting.

This a self-guided tour. You can check out an I-Pad at the front desk, use an app on your smart phone or just use the paper booklet also checked out at the desk to guide you through the museum. Everyone will love the "money wall"! This a collection of all currency minted during each presidency. The vault is also fascinating!!... More

Get an iPad for each kid and your golden. The scavenger hunt works best if adults pair with kids and each kid can do their own hunt! There is lots to read and explore. The vault is interesting and amazing. The iPad's can be checked out for an hour which is plenty of time for this museum. Interesting from a... More

Everyone was very helpful but I felt that not being in a tour group we missed out. Older kids and groups would enjoy it more.

The musuem is interesting in the facts and display of US currency. Interesting to learn why the money is shredded versus burning. Large coin collection and paper currency on display.

The coin collection is the best part, although a lot of people like seeing money being shredded or the stack of money etc.

Our feet were aching and sore from all the walking and touring all week, and on our last day in Kansas City, we still had not seen many attractions on our list. This was not one of them, but it was so close (a few short blocks from The Westin), that it was doable. We were very, very surprised that... More

Such a cool thing to visit. My wife collected coins as a child and loved it. You can see all different coins and bills that you probably did not know existed. You can also can get a bag of shredded old currency.

This is a very interesting look into the back halls of the Federal Reserve bank. Very interesting for adults and teens. Who does not like to see that much money, it is pretty amazing and very educational.

They had a lot of interesting information, but we found it a little boring--perhaps just not our thing. It was cool seeing all of the coins, but I probably wouldn't return unless I had kids to bring. They had a lot of educational and fun activities for children. The people there were very nice and they give you a free... More
