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.

The free tour of the museum here is worth it if you have an extra hour or so. Lots of interesting info on how our monetary system works and how the fed developed.

Just what you would expect from a Federal Building. Big, expensive, and not open???? I liked the Fed in Denver and wanted to compare.

I really enjoyed this self tour and it is free. It was amazing how the old bills get destroyed. This will be a great tour to take your family. There are some interactive exhibits. You also get a chance to lift a solid gold block and try to identify a counterfeit bill.

Enjoyed a great visit to the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta today. The museum is a very educational, interactive and fun. We enjoyed seeing a real gold brick (worth over a half million dollars) as well as the robots moving money around. Note - no pictures are allowed in the museum or on the tour of the facility. They do... More

This was much better than the CNN tour and it was FREE. I'm kind of a nerd and i knew I'd love this but my 9 and 12 year old were agog at being able to SEE the Federal reserve bank printing and shredding millions of dollars, the robot transports carrying millions- the uncut dollar sheets- the half million dollar...

The Federal Reserve museum in downtown Atlanta was very interesting. It does not take long to go through it. You are not able to take any cameras or your cell phone. We found that out the hard way. You were able to see and lift a real gold bar. Also stand next to millions of dollars and look into the... More

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.
