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.

We went to the Federal Reserve Museum, and although small it was an interesting place to visit. Especially if you want to stand next to 30.000.000 Dollars

This provided to be an interesting half hour stop off on our tour round denver. Some great information about bank notes and their history. Lots of activities for the kids and you can get a bag of shredded notes which is really cool. Have to go through security but no different to the airport really. If you're in the area... More

This was kind of a cool rainy day activity. Totally free, and very small. You have to go through a security screening area and put your bag through an xray machine, but it was pretty empty and fast when we were there. A few kind of interesting exhibits, but we probably only stayed about 30 minutes before we were done.... More

This is a fun activity for all ages. The building is smallish and can be seen in as little as 20 minutes or as long as 90. You get a free bag of $$ and kids really like this!
