I would recommend this museum to all ages. The federal staff of all jobs and responsibilities volunteer for an informational talk in a meeting room. We had a gentleman who was up the corporate ladder who loved to talk. He was delightful and funny. The museum is small and the space is used wisely. Go see a million dollars. Or pick up free money (shredded) Get educated.

If you are in town you should visit this museum it’s very interesting and it’s also free. There is a cube of 1 million dollars and also some free shredded money.

I stopped in with a friend because we are huge Hamilton fans and we’d heard there was a little Alexander Hamilton exhibit. We weren’t expecting much, but we were pleasantly surprised. There’s quite a few hands-on exhibits and we had a great time learning about spotting counterfeit, the details on paper money, and when money should be shredded. We even got free baggies of real shredded money and printed picture of ourselves with a case of a million dollars. That’s pretty big value for a free museum! It’s not large, but you could spend about an hour here if you read every plaque and played every game. We had a great time!
