This is a very well done exhibit. The relatively new Federal Reserve building itself is both beautiful and impressive. The federal guards were very pleasant and helpful. The nuseum is immediately inside the front doors.
The exhibit is interesting with a ton of information on monitary history and a most amazing money collection. I do not ever recall having seen biblical coins like a Widow's Mite, scheckles, talents (I may not be spelling these correctly)..and coinsa and bills from throughout human history and so many cultures. I never knew these things survived.
I was with some friends and family so I kept my reading contained - could have spent another hour reading about our monitary system and history.
Not for younger kids!...For the many parents that disrespect the rest of the world, let me repeat: NOT FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN!!! That said, there are enough interactivew displays that a pre-teen may be engaged for 30 minutes.
Allow 2 hours if you like to inspect history and study civilizations or are just very interest in our monitary system and policy process.
Oh yeah...seeing the completely automated robot forklift thingies haul millions of dollars around was almost as neat as getting a keepsake bag of shredded money!!!
