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.

I took my three kids ages 2, 4, and 7 here to learn about money. It was a great experience for them. Yes it was mostly over their heads, but they all learned something. We spent about an hour total in the museum.

Really cool place that not a lot of people know about. A decent, self-led tour teaches you about the banking system. Watching the money being shredded and the robots transporting money is really cool.

Since we visited the Margaret Mitchell House, we decided to visit the Federal Reserve Bank, which is located right next door. After going through security and putting our belongings in a locker, we began our free, self-guided and interactive tour of the museum. The Federal Reserve Bank offers a detailed history of currency and the U.S. banking system. Visitors see... More

I am giving the Federal Reserve Bank 4/5 based solely on the educational value of the presentations. It was a bit disappointing that a few of the exhibits did not work, but overall it was an educational experience.

We live nearby and walk, run or drive past this building almost daily. Today we finally stopped in and took the free tour. That's right - FREE! When you walk in you'll put your belongings on a scanner just like the X-ray in the airport, then walk through a metal detector. After clearing security you'll walk over to the main... More

I visited with my 3 children who are 18, 10, and 9. It was interesting in different ways to all of us, and kept us interested for about an hour and a half. We especially liked the observation area and the high denomination bills. My kids were fascinated with the shredded money to take home. Be ready to be scanned... More

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!
