The museum features a display on the history of money; interactive, multimedia exhibits explaining the Federal Reserve's role in the economy; and a view of the bank's automated vault and cash processing areas. In addition, most group tours include a stop in the bank's boardroom. A tour of the museum provides in-depth lessons on the role of the Federal Reserve in the U.S. economy. Then, you can take a look inside our cash-processing operations, where millions of dollars are counted, sorted, or shredded daily. You'll also get a glimpse into the bank's automated vault and see the robotic transports that do the heavy lifting.

Never knew you could visit here. Very interesting story of the History of Money. Also, how money travels thru the Federal Reserve System. Displays are informative and easy to read and understand. No charge for an hour of information. Good rainy day activity.

My dad likes to coin collect so we went here to see this one. They do not allow purses or backpacks, you have to lock them in lockers. They do have an area that shows them stacking and bundling bills, which was neat.

Yes it is free and no appointment needed. They also provide a free locker because you can not carry any bags of any sort. You may want to check for holiday hours if you are going anytime soon.

Yes. There are machines that count the $ under human supervision and robots that take the money into the vaults (no access). I would call first to make sure they are receiving visitors or go on their web site. Holidays can... More
