I did find this a little lacking as an attraction. School groups come here daily and the displays are all geared towards them. There are two iPad 'adventures' you can sign out, but they were very childlike as well. Bring the kids, watch large amounts of money behind glass and get some free (shredded) notes to take home.

The collection of coins minted during every presidency was the only attraction. Getting a bad of shredded money is also neat.

The Money Museum. Right on the grounds of The WW1 Museum on Memorial Drive in Kansas City, its hard to find (Look for the Kansas City Federal Reserve, the door faces north), this free museum has a nice coin collection, you get to see a tower of millions of dollars, interactive things for the kids to play with, watch robotic...

This attraction is free and is well worth your stop. The parking lot is small, so if you have an RV you will want to try and arrive early so you can park nearby. You have to go through security, but it is no bid deal. There are displays with each president with the money of their time on display.... More

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
