Free, can watch carts of money roll by, can even lift a gold bar

As part of the Federal Reserve, this is a neat place to visit. You visit on a self guided tour and can see quite a bit in a very short amount of time. Seeing all that money in one location is amazing! Visiting is free, but remember to bring your ID so that you can enter the facility. If you're... More

The money museum portion is very economics based and will quickly cause many people's eyes to glaze over, unless you are a business or economics person. However, watching the verification process of currency, peering into the vault, and seeing how it is fully automated is pretty neat. You can literally watch as stacks of $10million in currency roll past. They... More

Free museum.. bring i.d. The coin collection was very interesting. My young kids enjoyed creating their own money by making imprints with crayons, getting a free bag of shredded money and creating a bill with their pictures on it on a computer. Better exhibit for adults or older children. (2, 4 and 6 year old were ready to go after... More

Most of the displays are just that, a dry,kinda boring display, but then, what the Fereral Reserve does isn't that exciting. The best part of the museum was watching the workers and the robots. They also give away free money, a bag of shredded currency that holds about $165. Fun for the kids

The kids and I enjoyed this easy walk through museum. Interactive stations made an interesting way to learn about money. We also enjoyed watching them bundle money. The fun bag of shredded money given as a complimentary gift made the kids smile.

Lots of info with hands on exhibits. Some of the exhibits were broken. You will see and learn lots of stuff. You get to watch the workers handle lots of cash in the vault. You get a free bag of shredded money when you leave. May not be good for kids under 10 in my opinion. A

Since this was free, I gave it 3 stars. Not a lot to see, but you do get a free bag of shredded bills at the end. Teenagers will enjoy.

Visited the museum on a day school was cancelled, they are not open on weekends. I had two boys ages 5 and 10 with me. Security check point and ID required to get in. Museum is not huge but the displays are nice and several are interactive. You can also borrow an IPad and go on a "quest." The quest... More

Fantastic for kids but good for all. Good event for an hour or two. Also it is free. Great view of the racks of money. You get a free bag of money. Learned about some cool coins like a half dime.
