Nice place with an amazing history of one of the sought after things in American History. It is very well maintained and the staff was super friendly.

There's not a ton to do or see. You can easily be in and out in 30 minutes to an hour. Luckily there's a lot to do nearby: WWI memorial, Crown Center, Union Station, streetcar, etc. You do get to take home a free bag of shredded currency, which is pretty cool.

Great museum. It's free. Plus they give you a bag of money bad part it's shredded cash

Dan Friday

Staff are super amazing here - great place to visit with family to learn about money.

Chris Bloomfield

Interesting place to learn about the Federal Reserve. Some hands on activities for kids. It was free and everyone could take a bag of shredded cash. It's a working reserve bank, so adults need IDs to get in and you have to go through a security check point. Free parking next to the bank. I thought it was ironic that the gift shop couldn't break my $100 bill. It was neat watching the workers handle huge amounts of cash near the vaults. We learned something's and enjoyed our visit.

Rick Deering

Great little museum - spend an hour or so here. Amazing facts and the shear volume of money they handle is incredible! Very cool display of a coin collection of each variant of coins from the 1800's and forward.

Don't miss the money robots in the back! Be sure to grab a free bag of (shredded-up) money. Truman's no ey collection is very interesting!

Fun and informative all for free. The kids loved the interactive parts, putting their faces on money, lifting gold, and the bag of shredded money.

Auch für ausländische (deutsche) Besucher ist das Museum wegen der guten Mischung aus Fakten und anschaulichen Exponaten sehr zu empfehlen.

Where do I begin? This explains a thing or two about money....and then some. (Like yo dollas are actually part linen.) To me, one of the most impressive features/exhibits of the place, is the Truman Coin Collection on the wall first thing as you enter. Almost every coin ever minted, displayed by Presidential Administrations. A gold brick you can touch, and yes a "Wall of Money." Millions upon millions....or nowadays, Racks on racks on racks, of CASH. Staring at it is like nothing I've ever experienced. The building is a large, imposing, modern structure with a stunning glass lobby. The history will leave you looking, and feeling, differently about cold, hard, cash. The bag of free shredded counterfeit is a nice touch, too. Just do it.

Thomas Myers

There is so much to learn, and everything is presented in such an easy format to take in. Lots of great little activities and exhibits for kids. There are some activities that are better for younger kids, like creating your own dollar bill (they have a station with a blank currency note and crayons, where you can shade different patterns that are embossed off the table), but there are even more activities that are good for older kids, like learning the distinction between wants and needs, and balancing your activities to meet your budget goals. There was a film playing when we got there, which talked about the history of how the Fed came to KC, and although I didn’t get to watch all of it (my 4 year old was tired) I found it fascinating and informative. It’s fun to be able to take home a little bag of shredded, unfit currency too. Each visitor can take one bag, and it’s branded with the “billion dollar experience” logo. All in all, a very fun, free experience. Would highly recommend!

Norman Davis

Really good. Cool for kids. The $40M wall and the VAULT were fascinating!

This is a small museum to take in at the federal reserve bank. It's free. The Truman coin collection is really something to see. It's arranged so that you can see which coins were in circulation during each president's term. The best attraction here, though, is the automated trucks and cranes that move the money around inside the bank. Three trucks named Huey, Dewey, and Louis drive back and forth moving money from one place to the next. All automated. It's mesmerizing really. Totally worth the price of admission. And it's free.

We went here last minute and were pleasently surprised. The kids (4 and 7) were not so impressed, but we enjoyed it. The kids did like the robots that moved the money.

Great museum for kids and the best part is the price. Just enough information to keep the adults engaged but lots of stuff for the kids.

Carrie Thomson

This place awesome. Great for any age.

Scarlett Cooper

Took my 2 kids ages 6&16 to the FREE money museum on the non guided tour. There were a lot of other kids there bc it was the summer so it was hard to take time and look throughly at some items. However there were plenty of things to see such as the 27lb gold brick, $100,000 bill, the vault that processes over $4 million dollars per day and has over a billion in storage. You can make your own "dollar bill" in a couple of ways. On your way out you can take a bag of shredded money.

Buena visita interesante

Michael Nelson

Just a quick 15 minute walk south from Union Station is this amazing museum! All about the Benjamin's? Then this place is for you. After a quick check in at the door with security, you are quickly greeted by a plethora of different kiosks, all there to engage with you and teach you something you didn't know. From today's currency to the first American currency, you will be amazed at by the collection of everything US money. Its so cool my 6 year old was entertained and carried his free bag of shredded money around the whole time. Definitly worth a visit.

Fun times

Alexander Vallar

First, it's absolutely free which rare now days! Sadly a majority of the touch screen were either slow, outdated, or didn't work properly which diminished my experience; other than that the museum was very unique and informative. The main attraction is definitely worth the visit and receiving a free souvenir isn't the worst thing either.

Lourdes Aguilera-Diaz

The staff is very friendly but there is no photos allowed

Didn't even give out free money at the end of the tour

If you ever wondered how money is printed and how our economy is protected, great place. Parking can be tight in high traffic times.

Steve Baumeister

Wouldn't let us in! Needed passport as ID, driving licence wasn't good enough. This wasn't clearly specified on the website.

Johnny Smith

Great place to learn

Anna K

Okay little museum. Lots of interactive displays and a rare look inside the inner workings of the Fed. You can get a bag of free shredded up money. Tip: do the survey towards the end for a surprise benefit.

Christopher Bryan

This place is great. So many cool features that deal with all the aspects of the federal reserve and the banking system. Fun stuff for the kids and you can't beat the price.

Matthew West

Such a cool museum. It's free. Be prepared to show ID and go through metal detectors.

Hanging Out with George I took the time to let my curiosity roam and found one of the most interesting free tours in Missouri. The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City is an impressive regional headquarters of the central bank of the United States. I’m embarrassed to say that it’s taken all this time for me to explore a site that’s located in my own backyard. Within the buildings design of clean, simple lines, space and pleasing light, is a trove of information, photos, displays and an actual work force on site. Read about the monetary policy and how the Federal Reserve controls the supply and tracking of currency as the regions demand for cash determines it. Through easy to read displays, learn of the supervision and regulation of banks throughout the nation as the Federal Reserve promotes steady growth and expansion in the economy. You will discover how money is distributed to banks as well as what steps are taken to replace worn out and counterfeit bills. A few quick fun facts- Try to lift the 27-pound, 389.27 oz gold bar that was cast in 1959 at the U.S. mint in San Francisco. It takes 24 minutes for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to print 10 million new 100.00 bills! In 1988, the bank pneumatic tube messaging system, installed in 1921 was taken out of commission. If you spent one dollar every second, it would take 15 months before you spent 40 million dollars. During your visit, check out the Truman Coin Collection then make your way to the cash vault to view money being counted and stored. Overall: This free self-guided tour is a great way to get a better understanding of the Feds purpose as well as introducing children to the importance and value of saving, investing and that money doesn’t grow on trees!

The Lego Maniacs

I enjoyed our visit. it was quite interesting. We went for homeschool week as part of the Family Tours. I was a little disappointed because it wasn't geared toward the younger kids at all. I heard that they have some neat things usually for the younger kids. So I wish the Family Tours could be geared a little more to the mixed ages. But it was interesting for us older folks & it was very convenient for parking. And free which is awesome.

Shane McIntosh

Several interesting exhibits and a large amount of information. Cool place to visit if you're in the area, takes about 1.5 hours to see everything.

When you call yourself a museum for money you'd better have lots of cash. The Fed delivers on that one. You see a multi-million dollar wall of bills (not all real though), a massive Truman coin collection back to Washington, an enormous shredder (of which you can take home a bag of greenback shreds), and a cavern of bank deposits managed by three robotic forklifts. There's lots of history including machine guns, half a million dollars of a gold bar to lift, and interactive kid's stations. One of my favorite KC s spots.

Sree Ranga Praveen Kumar Reddy Meenige

this is a free entry museum. try to take original photo id with you .driving licence,passport any photo id is fine . takes around 30 to 40 time . can see the coins used under different presidents, can feel the weight of a GOLD bar and also how the counting and stacking of money is done

Mark Jansen

What a really neat concept, and very American. A museum dedicated to the concept of money. It really is worth your time if you want to go visit it. The coin collection in there is second to none, it has examples of almost every coin ever minted by the United States Treasury. They have a 30 lb bar of gold you can lift up. And there's some really neat displays outside of that. Worth your time for a short visit.

Shari Bush

Short tour but cool. I liked seeing them by vault putting money together.

Anthony Nugnes

Highly recommend if you have an hour or two to kill in KC. Staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. Nice gift shop too.

The money museum has a ton of information about the history of our currency. They even let you feel the weight of a gold bar!

Chelsi Hornbaker

A fun place to visit and learn about money! Not an all day event, but a couple hours will do the trick. Plus you get a free bag of shredded money as a souvenir.

Tim Johnston

Go watch robots move money!

Great information about the Federal Reserve Bank. Has parking lot on the west side. Bring your drivers license. Hands on displays are great for kids and adults alike. Free money!! To bad it's shredded. Neat display of coins starting with George Washington.

Fascinating place and love that you can see all the old currency

Ashley Moore

My kids haven't had that much fun at an educational place in a long time! Definitely recommend this for anyone of all ages.

Nicholas Dendanto

It was very interesting to see all different types of coins, coins issued by presidents, Procedures they take for money among other things. It was educational and wonderful to learn while visiting KC. Best motivation was free admission which was a bonus from a long weekend trip we had all while trying to find some things to see in KC. I recommended visiting with school age kids or yourself if visiting for a quick learning experience. Tours are available there I believe at certain times we didn’t use one at the time. Would visit there again.

Jeremy B

Great place to visit, and it's free!

Jared Bohn

I work in a bank, so paper money usually isn't terribly interesting, but I thought this was a great experience, especially since admission is free. There are plenty of neat exhibits showing historical currency and giving details on how money is made and protected. There's a lot of interactive stuff for kids to be engaged with, and enough artifacts and statistics to keep older kids and adults interested.

Interesting place- you'll learn a lot. Be prepared to go through a metal detector since this is inside a federal building. ID required!
