The museum features a display on the history of money; interactive, multimedia exhibits explaining the Federal Reserve's role in the economy; and a view of the bank's automated vault and cash processing areas. In addition, most group tours include a stop in the bank's boardroom. A tour of the museum provides in-depth lessons on the role of the Federal Reserve in the U.S. economy. Then, you can take a look inside our cash-processing operations, where millions of dollars are counted, sorted, or shredded daily. You'll also get a glimpse into the bank's automated vault and see the robotic transports that do the heavy lifting.

Go Mon -Thurs. It was a nice visit but they don't process much on Fridays we were told. There was $2/hrs street parking two blocks west by the Metra station.

Our visit to the Federal Reserve Bank was an unexpected surprise! It’s a self-guided tour with many interactive displays that teach you about inflation, supply and demand and how the Federal Reserve Bank provides guidance to and interacts with our local banks. You can even lift a gold bar weighing 27 lbs with a large lever. The best part of... More

This is a very nice little museum that explains the history, importance, and distribution of the US currency supply. The view of the actual counting floor is a real experience. The downside is because of security concerns, no photography of any kind once you enter the building (there is a security check...no cell phones allowed either!

The observation room was completely fascinating, the sheer amount of money being moved around was astonishing. Employees were very nice, and the information provided on the self tour is great.

I've lived in the metro Atlanta area for 25 years and never given the Federal Reserve Bank a second thought until my father came to visit last week. Looking for something interesting to do, the Fed showed up here in a search. It's free, interesting and a good way to spend an hour or so in the city. I've always... More

Although this museum is small, it is interesting and free. There are many interactive information screens for kids and adults. You lift a bar of gold worth $500,000 and you can see the automated carts delivering millions of dollars into the 5-story vault. You even get a free souvenir! There is no parking on the block where the bank is... More

I spent more than an hour watching this free museum. I saw for first time in my live a US $ 100,000 bank note. They also have the $ 500 and $ 1,000 bank notes. Good displays and basic financial and economics exanations.

My young kids and I liked it. I think most Adults will find it rather interesting. It is a self-paced tour with interactive displays, that help teach children, and adults about printing money, inflation, supply and demand, and other basic economics. Might sound boring but it wasn't! I hate to say everything that is in there, find out for yourself.... More

This review is for the Monetary Museum of Atlanta, not the Federal Reserve Bank. But the museum is inside the bank. I found the museum somewhat disappointing as a walk-in visitor. They have a few interesting exhibits concerning the history of money and a nice display of all the gold coins minted in Dahlonega. The rest were not too interesting... More
