We visited Kansas City with our 4 yr old and 1 yr old sons. This was one of our stops, but the kids weren't all that impressed. It was a neat place if we had time to read everything more. But, it wasn't too kid-friendly....More

The museum is inside the Federal Reserve Bank. It’s small yet eye opening. I’ve never seen that much cash and that big piece of gold brick in person before. It’s interesting to observe staff putting money into machines that scan for counterfeits and sort out...More

The most interesting part of the free Money Museum is the cash vault where one can see Federal Reserve employees handling millions of dollars of cash. There are also some educational exhibits about the Federal Reserve, as well as small collections of coins and banknotes.

Small museum that is self-guided, except at 10:00, 10:30, and 2:00, when a volunteer employee provides a tour for those interested. Definitely recommend the tour. You learn about Harry Truman's stolen and recreated coin collection, different aspects of the paper money processing at the Kansas...More

It was interesting to see all of the different exhibits presented, but don't revolve your day around this. If you complete a survey afterwards, you can get buy one get one tickets for the Liberty Memorial WW1 museum, which is what I recommend.

Where can you find a free museum that also provides a free gift? The coin display was really neat and there are lots of interactive exhibits for all ages. And you can watch employees shredding old bills. The coin display didn't have a lot of...More
