The free tour was both informative and interesting and well worth it. We enjoyed wondering through the museum and then taking the tour. Our guide was enthusiastic and had a lot of knowledge on all aspects of the Federal Reserve. She talked through the museum exhibits and offered additional information and then we went down to the vaults to see... More

The tour of the Federal Reserve is great if you have an interest in economics and/or US history. Our 16 year old daughter who has studied some economics at high school found it interesting. It would probably not be as interesting for younger children. The tour of the gold vault was really special. Unfortunately (but understandably) photography is not allowed.

The building is impressive, especially knowing the history of the building. We didn't take the tour, but walking by is an experience on itself.

We took the hour tour and it was better than I thought. We got the whole history of the reserve as well as being able to go in vault to see all the gold. The lady doing the tour was a bit dry but very informative.

There were only 10 people on our tour. Our guide was very informative​ and getting chance to see the actual gold bars in the... More

It took a couple of tries but I was able to book the tour. The tour is interesting and you do get to visit the gold vault. It is a fun time for sure.

All staff here were great from the federal reserve police to tour guides. The Police were very chatty and engaging and our tour guide was knowledgeable and seemed to answer all... More

A visit to the Federal Reserve is a MUST DO. This is because of the guided tour that it provides to all the visitors. It is an experience of a life time. During the course of the tour they take you down to the vault where all that REAL GOLD is stored in bar forms. This is at a dept... More
