“A billion dollar experience”

The Money Museum at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, is a unique experience offering a free, up-close look of the nation's financial system in action. Learn about the Fed through fun and interactive exhibits that explore banking, the economy and how monetary policy decisions impact your family's bottom line. Fun for all ages; test your strength and lift a solid gold bar; place your photo in the center of custom designed currency that can be emailed home for sharing with family and friends; take a peek into a four-story cash vault; view the automated robots that move the money; and try to detect counterfeit currency. Walk-in guests and groups are always welcome. Free guided tours can be arranged for educational, civic, professional, and social groups of 12 or more with advance registration. All visitors take home a free bag of shredded currency. Located next to the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial and within a block of Crown Center in the heart of Kansas City. Don’t forget to stop by the Vault Store for official Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City merchandise and financial education materials. Free admission and free parking.

Very interesting self-guided tour. Coins from early U.S. time (George Washington) to the present; bills from pre-Civil War era, some interactive exhibits that are more-or-less interesting. The most interesting for us was watching the money counting and binding, then seeing the robotic forklifts take the containers of dough into the vault. Enjoyable. (Make sure every visitor of driving age has their drivers license with them, as the guards will ask to see it upon admission.)

Enjoyed this stop. Only took about 30-40 minutes to look around. The coin collection was very interesting and qyite a few hands on activities for the kiddos. I would recommend the stop.
