They have a lot of interactive demos to show how the economy works. You even leave with a bag of money (shredded 😁). You have to go through security to visit, and adults need a photo ID.

My family was going to do the Gateway Arch Riverboat cruise, but it was canceled due to river flooding. However, that allowed us to go and see the Inside the Economy museum. You have to go through airport-like security to get in (since it's in...More
