I liked the place. It was really cool to see the all the money we have used as a nation. They have currency dating back before the civil war. If you are going downtown for a history tour. Stop by

Going thru 3 security checks is half the fun. The other half is seeing a lot of real money you can almost touch, but not quite, sorry.

The money museum is new with fun and interactive stations. Very informative and don't forget to get a free sample of shredded money before you leave.
