This museum was nice to visit. It was payed out well and allowed you to wander around on your own. Some of the displays didn’t work which was disappointing. Overall it was a cute place to visit and interesting.

You can probably see everything in about an hour; the tour guides enjoy their jobs! The stacks of money is not something I have seen anywhere else. We went on a special Friday when there was a tour of the art collection. Not many pieces,...More

This was an awesome educational experience for me and my family. There was so much to learn. Every facet of our nation's currency was either shown or explained. Interactive activities were fun! A very small gift shop but has enough to bring home nice gifts...More
