While visiting Atlanta we took a trip to visit the Federal Reserve Bank, learned a great deal about the federal reserve and saw the history of the bank and how money is processed. Well worth the trip and no cost.

My son is always interested in old coins and bills so the Monetary Museum was the perfect place for him to visit. I guess the 1/2 penny displayed here is the 3rd one he has seen (the others in a DC Smithsonian museum). The museum...More

Yes it is free and no appointment needed. They also provide a free locker because you can not carry any bags of any sort. You may want to check for holiday hours if you are going anytime soon.
