Activity Overview

The Money Museum is one of the many financial centers in the country where money is sorted and transported to banks all across the nation. You'll see millions of dollars carted around on forklifts and packaged away for shipment. It's located right inside the Kansas City Federal Reserve, giving you and your family a hands-on opportunity to discover where money comes from and how the Federal Reserve works. Take a tour of the facility, its many vaults, and explore the many interactive exhibits, including trying to lift a solid gold bar worth roughly $400,000. The Kansas City location is also home to President Truman's extensive - and exclusive - coin collection.

Money Museum Insider Tips

  • Tours are free but must be booked in advance. Book online directly through their website, and take advantage of the three dates options to give yourself back-up dates in case your first choice is full.
  • You will have to go through a TSA-style screening process before entering the museum, so make sure you have your ID with you and empty all metals from your pockets.
