Fortunately, our family attended on a Tuesday when they give "pop up" tours! The museum is FREE & there is so much to do. We learned so much about money & how our economic system works without feeling like we were being schooled. Huey, Dewey, & Louie are a joy to observe! I enjoyed seeing how coins changed throughout the... More

This is a nice stop across from the WWI museum/monument. There isn't much to do or see, so it doesn't take long to go through. You can see some of the Federal Reserve workers doing work, but not sure what it is they are doing. You can take a bag of shredded money when you leave.

We got there about 30 minutes before closing so I didn't get to see everything I wanted to see, but it was really cool. Having worked at a financial institution for so long it was really interesting to see a branch of the federal reserve. I especially like seeing Huey, Dewey & Louie. Didn't get to see them moving money,... More

My kids and husband found this very enjoyable and educational. Took us a little over an hour with our 3 kids (6-9) to tour it. Drawback is that it is only open 930-4 M-F so plan accordingly.

Lots of neat old coins to look at, a few fun things to do for kids, not the most exciting place ever. It won't take you too long to go through it, just make sure you have your ID for check in. My 12 year old son loved getting his picture taken with the giant bill, making a digital bill,... More

Very close to World War I Museum . Get to see currency being bundled . Exhibits showing History of US money . Wall exhibit with all US coins very interesting.

A few interactive exhibits, a history of US coinage along one wall, but very superficial overall. The exhibit texts and movie narration were singularly "Ra-Ra Fed" without any hint of what alternatives there might be of the current Fed structure, or anything the Fed may not have done quite right in the past (of which a few certainly exist). Cheap... More

This does have free parking and free admission. It will hold your attention for 1 to 1.5 hrs. They have hands on activities for smaller kids and information that smaller kids can understand. Was there for the pop up tour at 2:30 which was very helpful. Have to have your ID if over 18 years old. There is ipads that... More

First, be prepared to go through security. Just a heads up - those over 18 need an ID. Once you get in, make sure to check out the I-Pad to do one of the interactive scavenger/treasure hunts. Helps kids get engaged with the displays.

Very cool quick tour. Security was extremely nice. The museum area was interactive and is good for all ages. It is free and there is a tour on certain days.
