Very cool museum showing a brief snippet of the federal reserve. The display of what 40 M looks like was very cool and getting to see inside the Cash vault was cool too! Don’t forget to try to lift the Gold bar too!

Disclaimer: I have a Finance degree, so maybe I enjoyed this more than the average person. You could actually watch the employees sorting and bundling cash and the robots taking it in and out of the vault. Plus they had an awesome coin collection and...More
