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

Near WWI Museum and Crown Center. Right now they have a huge display of coins from the Truman Library, and several exhibits on coins and currency, and a viewing area where you can see money being processed and bagged. Kids would like watching robotic vehicles carrying money to the vault

I stumbled upon this place while searching for fun and educational things to do with the kids. Admission is free and it is engaging for all age groups. You even get a bag of shredded cash to keep as souvenir. It was fun seeing Louie, Dewey & Huey. =)

Not a very big museum, but then again it is the federal reserve so I imagine there not at liberty to just let people stroll all over the place. What they do have on display is very intriguing, and you receive a bag of shredded money upon your completion of the tour. Make sure you have a valid ID with... More

I thought this would be similar to the Canadian Mint Museum in Ottawa, which I found fascinating. I love learning about the history of our money and how it is made, handled and circulated. I was a bit disappointed. Heavy security at the entry, we brought our Canadian passports, and they took longer to clear them than other visitors, who... More

We all liked to see Huey, Dewey, and Louis move the money!!! You have to stop in to see what that means! It was interesting and it cost is no money. We got to see how our money changed over the years which I thought was interesting. Definitely worth stopping.

This was a very interesting place to visit. Learned a lot about the history of money! Coin collection was very interesting. We even saw a $10000 bill! Learned a lot about circulation. Not crowded, very laid back and enjoyable. Lots of exhibits that you can read, several interactive kiosks, videos to watch and a view of the employees sorting and... More

Was a very interesting experience. As it is a Federal building you need to ensure you have a valid ID to enter. Use the OR function of your phone to scan the code for a more in depth tour and more information. They have a gold bar you get to lift, you get to see 40 million dollars, and you... More
