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.

Every year I try to visit a museum in the metro area that I have not been to. The Fed has two things going for it it's free and it's easy to get to. But the biggest draw to me was sentimental as I used to run a bar here at the very same location. The museum is about money... More

I went in to the facility for an event last night and it was really nice. The setting was intimate and elegant. The tour of the money making and sorting area very insightful. The food at the event was amazing. The bar area was very easy to be at in terms of a lot of space. The parking was very... More

We arrived around 9AM and had immediate access as it was only three of us in our party so we did a self guided tour. Groups larger than four are required to book at least two weeks ahead of time. This is so everyone can have an enjoyable experience and no one is waiting long. If for whatever reason you... More

We were looking for somewhere to go at the end of the Monday we were in Atlanta, so we decided on the Federal Reserve, since it was nearby, and admission was free. There is also nearby parking at a very reasonable rate. Photos are not allowed in the facility, so they give visitors free postcards and also free bags of... More

Visit the FRB for the art and go when you can have a docent explain the different pieces. I know someone who works there so I am not sure exactly which areas I visited were on the regular tour and which were behind the scenes.

A lot of educational videos. A nice place to take are group of students of any age.. Some of the displays are interactive and others you simply read and admire because you are not allowed to take pictures.

My two teenage boys and I were happily surprised when we visited the Fed in Atlanta. They have many interactive exhibits and I feel I have learned quite a bit about understanding the roles and responsibilities the Fed has to our US economy and globally. Both of my boys found it worth their time and actually enjoyed our almost two... More

The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is extremely easy to include in your 'Sites to See' while in Atlanta. Depending upon your interest in how the US Federal Reserve system work and its history, your tour can take anywhere from 1-3 hours (how much do you want to or have time to read?). I like historical and current details ...... More

Very interesting but you can not just walk in off the street. You can see money made as well as being shredded. Ask for a packet of shredded bills. A real conversation piece.
