While we did expect a larger museum, this was definitely worth the visit. Plenty of activities for the children while the parents browse around. We all enjoyed up bag of shredded money at the end of the tour.

Doesn't sound like much but if you are curious about money or what happens to it take this tour. You can watch huge sums of cash being moved by automated forklifts and you are rewarded with a small bag of shredded cash

Fun to see how money is counted and sorted. Huey, Dewey and Louie are robotic machines that move money into sections of the reserve. When you leave you get to take a bag of shredded money equal to $165.00.

The kids enjoyed designing their own currency, there were examples of bills that I had NEVER known to exist, and you get to see a bit of the workings of the Mint (mostly robots transporting palettes). PLUS you get a bag of shredded money! All free! You won't need a ton of time, but this filled the hotel checkin-to-dinner gap... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Money Museum on the first floor of the KC Federal Reserve Bank. The many displays, glassed exhibits, interactive kiosks and other information displays provide as much education as you care to invest time in. The most fascinating to me was the bank vault with each door weighing 9 tons and the fully automated robotic machines named... More

Interesting information about the Federal Reserve System and how the U.S. economy works. Souvenirs include a little bag of shredded bills (free) and some neat photo ops. Worth a short visit when in KC.

This was a great thing to see because the security here is so extreme, if you get in, you have to enjoy it! If you like looking at money, real money, and lots of it, you need to see this place. Forklifts move piles of money behind glass walls and 2 foot thick doors. Regardless if you think the Federal... More

We all enjoyed it but can see/do the entire thing in about 45 minutes. Had our 7 year old grand daughter and 5 year old grandson with us. They also liked it. Huey, Dewey & Louie delivering the cash were a real treat for everyone. Of course, watching people sort/count millions is fun!

This museum is really beautiful and well done. There are several activities to keep the tweens busy and involved. The souvenir bag of shredded money is a big hit too. Really enjoyed our time here.

We were going through Kansas City, MO and decided it might be fun to stop by the Money Museum. There were lots of little interactive booths to mess with, and lots of information to absorb for my little ones. The wall of coins was really awesome for me as I am a coin person! And seeing millions of dollars in... More
