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.

This was a fascinating and educational tour. Seeing money that was used long ago was amazing. Watching how they print money and destroy old money was quite interesting. Storing the money was even more fascinating. WOW!!!

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.
