“The home of America's money”
The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is part of the central bank of the United States. The Federal Reserve System—the Fed, as it is often called—consists of twelve Reserve Banks located around the country and the Board of Governors in Washington, D.C. The Atlanta Fed and the other Reserve Banks play an important part in all three of the Fed's functions: monetary policy, bank supervision and regulation, and the operation of a nationwide payment system. The Bank's research and expertise are shared with the public in various ways—in publications, speeches, participation in public policy organizations like task forces on local infrastructure and commissions on state tax reforms, and sponsorship of conferences on current policy issues. Through these various educational outreach activities the Bank reflects its grassroots ties to the Southeast. These ties, in turn, help make the Fed—a decentralized central bank and public policy institution—the successful organization it has been over the past century. The museum features a display on the history of money; interactive, multimedia exhibits explaining the Federal Reserve's role in the economy; and a view of the bank's automated vault and cash processing areas. In addition, most group tours include a stop in the bank's boardroom. A tour of the museum provides in-depth lessons on the role of the Federal Reserve in the U.S. economy.
