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

Who doesn't love money? Or at least appreciate it. Take a gander at $40 million, make your own bill, learn the role of the Federal Reserve and much, much more. Extremely well done and for a good price -- FREE

It is worth making a stop at the money museum! It is very interesting to see how they get the money ready and to see the vault! My husband and kids (ages 9, 11) all found the museum to be very fun and interesting! Our kids got their picture taken in front of $40 million dollars!! There were also several... More

Those 18 and older have to get an ID check, and everyone passes through a metal detector. There are guards, and lots of warnings about no photos in certain places. Lots of interactive kiosks about the Federal Reserve, inflation, and money. Kids can design their own "cash" and have it emailed to them. Also more traditional displays about history and... More
