There are a few signs to read & some interactive quizzes to play "on line" but really it's a small display in the lobby of a federal office building. Because there is actually millions of dollars on premises security is tight & they are draconian...More

I think they could have made better use of space. The hall is humongous and they only used like 1/3 of the space. I liked the bag of shredded money given. No pictures. It was free to visit. Exhibits were interactive and interesting.

They have a free Cycle of Money exhibit. It is pretty neat to see if you like economics or just like to learn in general.

Federal Reserve Bank is a good rainy day outing. Fun place for children four and above to see and learn about money. Guides are very friendly and patient with children. Usually some free small item for children. Can spend an hour or two easily without...More

This was a nice compliment to the mint. A small display area to read and learn about currency in the US. And, they give all visitors a bag of shredded money :)

I stumbled upon this display. I veered in and took the self guided tour. It was well put together and a great way to show the average person how money is moved around in our country!

Toured the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. Have a free museum explaining the country's banking and monetary system. What you can't visit is the money vaults. Each FRB distributes currency to all of that region's banks. Philly FRB has 2 vaults (one for coins and...More

We visited the Fed by mistake. We meant t go to the Mint (which is across the street). The Fed has a small-ish exhibit on monetary policy, and they give you complimentary bags of shredded cash. You won't want to plan a trip to Philly...More
