We drove to Kansas City to visit the The Fed and it’s Money Museum. I wanted to take a look since I’ve only been to the The Fed in Los Angeles. I was also interested in how my two toddlers might interact with the museum.
There is a whole section devoted to the history of currency in the United States. There is another section for a treasure hunt, of sorts, for older kids. There is another interactive section that let’s children, and those of us that are children at heart, put our photos on a bill of our choosing, open doors and turn knobs to separate financial education fact from myth. The last bit is a glass wall that allows you to look into the cash handling section.
My kids are only three and two years old so after taking a few photos and running around a bit, they were over it. The Money Museum is on the first floor of the building that The Fed is in, so two little ones running around giggling loudly wasn’t a good look. Lol
