It has quite the collection of paper money to display and educational about the federal reserve. Even take home information and worksheets for the kids about money and the federal reserve and banks.

Noticed the sign for the free tour and took advantage after breakfast one day. Lots of history of money in the self-guided tour, you could spend an hour or 5 minutes. It would be a great place to take kids, as they had an interactive display to make your own money with your face on it...as well as making your... More

A nice place to walk in to warm up on a chilly day and kill some time, although very little. No more than 15-20 minutes needed for a visit. Has some cute activities for the kids, although during my visit it were mostly adults who engaged in them. Oh and free! So nothing to lose.

It's the real deal! We had to wait while the guards locked the gates, admitted an armored car, and loaded (or unloaded, or both) the armored car. After the armored car left the property, they unlocked the door and let the public in. Inside, we were treated to an interesting display of money - lots of it! They have a... More

We stopped by on a Monday when we were visiting Denver and were very pleasantly surprised. While it is not huge, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Money Museum. It is very informative and interesting. Definitely worth your time to go! Lots of information about the history of money in the US and a number of interactive exhibits along... More

Money can't buy happiness but I seemed very happy here 🙂 This is probably the smallest museum I ever visited, but one of the fun places to visit. It's located right on 16th street Mall. I happened to pass by and voila! I found lots of money! I decided to enter. The museum looks like a bank. It's a Federal... More

If you are looking for something free to do with a short amount of time, this might be the place for you. The museum has a nice mix of things to read and things to do/look at. They have an entire wall with the history of American currency that is simply samples of the different types of currency from over... More

While in downtown Denver, we decided to visit the Money Museum at the Federal Reserve Bank. It is a small museum, but it is very interesting!!! They have great displays of old US currency, and a very interesting video. I wish they had a gift shop! They do give you a small bag of money as you leave. I'd certainly... More

It is a self guided tour. It takes about 5 min just to walk through it. I am glad I stop by being that I was walking through downtown but I wouldnt go out of my way to visit it. It would be some what educational for children.
