Ever wonder how money works or what the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland does as part of the Central Bank of the US? Our Learning Center and Money Museum features more than 25 fun, hands-on exhibits that answer these questions and more! We have friendly staff on hand and interactive games, visual exhibits, creative stations and great films that explain everything about money you can think of from how we use it to why it looks the way it looks. Come see our historic lobby, take pics with our money tree, trade coconuts on Barter Island, identify counterfeit bills and even make your own money! All this in the heart of Cleveland, just steps away from other downtown attractions. Admission is free and photos are welcome.

This was a nice stop on a walking tour. We learned about the Federal Reserve system. The inside of the building is beautiful Italian marble. Very ornate. Cages that used to house bond sales are now museum rooms. Nice visit.

I brought my son after studying a Cub Scout adventure. Very educational about how money works at a level good for any age! The goody bag is awesome - all free! He even got a scouting patch!

A worthwhile stop in downtown Cleveland. Only takes about an hour. We learned a lot and had fun. The museum is free but you will pay about $13 to park at nearby parking garage.
