“Learn the history of money”

The Bank's Money Museum is free and open to the public year-round from 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, except on Bank holidays. All visitors must show a photo identification, walk through a metal detector and have their bags x-rayed before entering the Money Museum. No food or drink are allowed in the museum. Guided tours lasting roughly 45 minutes are available at 1pm on Monday through Friday, or by appointment. You can also visit the Money Museum on your own at any time during open hours. The museum includes a free kiosk, which takes your picture in front of a million dollars in $100 bills. Also, a million dollars in ones as well as twenties is on display. The museum has been known for giving out bags of shredded money as souvenirs.

A really interesting museum about the modern history of American money. There are a lot of different exhibits that you can explore at your own pace. You can also grab a free bag of shredded money to take home as a souvenir.

Since this is attached to the bank, you have to go through airport-like security to enter so be weary of that.

My dad works in finance and I took him here. It's kinda small but it's free, and we had some laughs trying to lose really bad at the games and posing for pictures with the money. Just FYI even though it looks like you can walk right it you have to have security let you in through a metal detector
