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 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.

Great interactive and explanatory exhibits. Who knew economy could be fun? Best part is the little bags of shredded money free for the taking.

Family enjoyed this. It was off our Radar until we got to Atlanta and came across it by accident. We think it is worth going to see and spend an hour learning the history of money and who is on the 100,000 dollar bill. In addition to see what they do with old used bills.

The Monetary Museum far exceeded our expectations. It boasted several rooms of interesting and highly interactive exhibits. Visitors can learn all about the history of money and take a look inside the Reserve’s cash-processing operation, where millions of dollars are counted, sorted, or shredded daily. They’ll even give you some of the shredded money to take home as a souvenir... More

Most Federal Reserve banks have some kind of money museum, and most of them are as boring as the name implies. This place has not only the usual displays of money and what the Fed does, but also lets visitors observe how the Fed moves money around. You can see automated trucks moving huge bundles of cash, and see the... More

I've always wanted to visit one of the Federal Reserve Banks and finally had a few hours to do so in Atlanta. The bank was very informative and interesting. I watched both films and walked thru the small museum; there are only 3 or 4 rooms but most of it is interactive, so you decide how much time you want... More

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
