Free shredded money as you go into the exhibit in the lobby. Very informative and interesting display. Some interactive parts to keep the kids interested.

Give it a visit if you are in the area. Very informative, free and you get a free bag of shredded money. Definitely go not just because of the free gift but because it's really interesting.

Walking distance to the Mint. If you want to stop at the Mint, bring your Photo ID for entry. The Fed Exhibit was well worth the stop and free as well. (Well we all pay for it of course!).

You stay in the lobby for this short tour. The highlight is a tube full of shredded money, as well as a mocked box of how they ship money from location to location. You are also given a bag of shredded money with roughly $100...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.
