  • Would not have chosen on my own, but so glad I visited. Modern with some interactive modules. History of coins. Don't miss watching the robots hauling pallets of money in the storage room. View the...  more »

  • 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!
  • 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.
