The kids and I enjoyed this easy walk through museum. Interactive stations made an interesting way to learn about money. We also enjoyed watching them bundle money. The fun bag of shredded money given as a complimentary gift made the kids smile.

Lots of info with hands on exhibits. Some of the exhibits were broken. You will see and learn lots of stuff. You get to watch the workers handle lots of cash in the vault. You get a free bag of shredded money when you leave. May not be good for kids under 10 in my opinion. A

Since this was free, I gave it 3 stars. Not a lot to see, but you do get a free bag of shredded bills at the end. Teenagers will enjoy.

Visited the museum on a day school was cancelled, they are not open on weekends. I had two boys ages 5 and 10 with me. Security check point and ID required to get in. Museum is not huge but the displays are nice and several are interactive. You can also borrow an IPad and go on a "quest." The quest... More

Fantastic for kids but good for all. Good event for an hour or two. Also it is free. Great view of the racks of money. You get a free bag of money. Learned about some cool coins like a half dime.

We took a Federal Reserve tour with a school group. We were split into two separate tours. The only difference was the tour guide. Half of the group was led by an energetic and informative guide. At the end of their tour, everyone seemed to be excited about what they had learned. The other half was led by a guide... More

If finance and money interest you, then this is worth a visit. An impressive collection of US coins is interesting. A brief, limited glimpse of currency being worked with was fun to see but left me wishing they could show us more. Security concerns make this impossible though. You can see the museum in an hour or so. Worth a... More

This was a very cool place to go and the best part it was free! Free souvenirs and even the stuff they have to purchase is decent priced. You have to make your own money! That was the highlight of our visit here!

This is great place for the any ages to visit. There is something for everybody plus you get to take home a small free bag of shredded dollars. Ask for the childrens passport, its full of things to them to look for and keep busy.
