Ever wonder how money works or what the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland does as part of the Central Bank of the US?

Small museum in an amazing building. Loved admiring the inside of this old building. The museum is very informative, lots of hands on attractions for the kids. Staff were all super helpful and friendly. Make sure you check out when they are open.

This was a nice stop on a walking tour. We learned about the Federal Reserve system. The inside of the building is beautiful Italian marble. Very ornate. Cages that used to house bond sales are now museum rooms. Nice visit.
