I wouldn't have thought of visiting the federal reserve bank but it was my son wanted to. It's a federal bank so you have to go through a TSA type screening to get in but then once you do; you are treated to a very,...More

We were in Philadelphia for 5 days, and while walking around downtown on Saturday, we saw the Federal Reserve Bank, with a sign to come in and see the Money in Motion exhibit. It was free, so I joked that maybe they'll give us free...More

A short, self-guided exhibit. But informative and free (and out of the heat, and they have bathrooms!) Nice look at the different currency and coinage from days gone by. Machine to get a commemorative state quarter was not working. Obviously there's security and metal detectors...More

this is a great stop on the way to Constitution Center, US Mint, etc. It probably takes 30 minutes to go through the exhibit and interactive sessions. You get some shredded money as souvenir, admission is free. Great place to cool off from the summer...More

Currency is not made at this site. There is an exhibit on the first floor and this is the only place you are allowed to go. The exhibit was good. Free admission.

You must go through security to get in the building. We were greeted and given a small bag of shredded money and a pamphlet regarding the exhibit. Nice memento! The exhibit is interactive and tests your knowledge of the American banking system. Pity that they...More

Almost as soon as you walk in, the staff gives you a bag of about $100 worth of shredded bills. Makes a great gift and souvenir. My kids really enjoyed (and so did adults) some of these exhibits on money. Like simulating bank payments (how...More
