Fun adventure for the family

This was a great eye opener on how our money system works. Nicely organized. Can take a tour, or look around at your own pace.

This place is free to visit, only takes about an hour and is kind of interesting. I enjoyed seeing the Truman Coin Collection and a $5,000 bill. When you leave they give you a free bag of shredded money.

Something that after many trips to KC over the years I had never heard or knew about the museum at the Federal Bank of KC. With our two grandchildren we went to and found a good way to spend an hour or so at no cost, and get a free bag of shedded money as the "official souvenir" You can... More

It as okay to see the 1/2 million in gold and nice to see 40 million in a wall. Coins were great but over all rather boring, price was right at free- but I would not do it again

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.
