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.

This tour and museum was fascinating. It was interactive and informative showing the history of currency with many examples of ancient coins and bills, as well as the history of the banking system in the US. There is also a glass room where the inner workings of the bank can be observed including robotic fork lifts bringing boxes of bills... More

Surprise: a real regional FRB (one of 11 in the country) welcomes visitors! The exhibits are educational and (somewhat) fun. Kids would enjoy it. There is a history of money exhibit, a movie theater, a games space, and lots more. My favorite by far was the actual sorting and warehousing of money (seen through really, really think glass.

As a free exhibit, this is a great place to walk by if you are visiting. There are a lot of interactive areas, informational plaques and a video about our banking system. There is also an area that you can see the actual money being made and moved around. Be sure to check the hours because it is not open... More

Dropped in because stayed nearby and is free (open Mon to Fri) and was surprised at how well this museum is put together. Well explained and interactive. Easy way to spend 45 min to an hour. PLUS they give you money! .....too bad it's shredded though.

Security here is really strict, as should be expected from a place that's letting you see millions of dollars in their money. However, everyone involved was very friendly and professional, in contrast to security in many other places. There's a game you can play where you can be a banker, business or consumer and have to make the right financial... More

The Fed is a bit out of the way compared to the other sights. You can't take your camera with you as you are in the actual Fed bank. That being said, it is an amazing opportunity to learn about how the financial system works. It has similar exhibits at start as new York one. But interesting part was seeing... More

I had come down to go to the Margaret Mitchell House and right across the street is the Federal Reserve Bank, so duh, I am on it. Wonderful architecture, beautiful grounds. Took so many great photos. Just an overwhelming piece of America. If you have the chance, make the visit.

It's free, and the FRB has done a really good job of it. I liked playing the games and learning about the money system. You can also spend all the time that you want watching the robots move millions of dollars around.
