The Money Museum was an awesome experience, it was fun watching them shredding old damaged money. A lot of education about 💰 money. The best thing was its free.

I visited the Money Museum and it was fascinating. Be sure and get the bag of shredded currency. Just one of many things to do and see in KC Crown Center area.

Even though I am not fond of The Fed, the museum is interesting. You can see how the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City processes and stores currency. A must see in Kansas City

One part I loved in this museum was the display of all of the coins used during all of the nations presidents terms. I never realized how much they had changed over the years. And it is free.
