Atlanta Monetary Museum
Explore the Federal Reserve's role in the economy through interactive exhibits. Tour the cash and check operation overlooks. By exploring an exhibit of historical artifacts, you will discover the fascinating story of money from barter to modern times. You will also learn about the turbulent history of banking in America and see examples of rare coins and currency. After touring the museum, experience the rest of the Visitors Center, where interactive and multimedia exhibits provide in-depth lessons on the role of the Federal Reserve in the U.S. economy. Then, you can take a look inside our cash-processing operations, where millions of dollars are counted, sorted or shredded daily. You will also get a glimpse into the bank's automated vault and see the robotic transports that do the heavy lifting. All this and more awaits you on a prearranged, guided tour of the Atlanta Fed's Visitors Center and Monetary Museum.
Group Guided Tours
For groups of 10–30 people, free group guided tours of Monetary Museum may be scheduled by appointment only. Because our tours are conducted by employee volunteers, we require a two-week window to schedule a tour. Tours are offered Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m.
Individuals or groups of fewer than ten people may participate in self-guided tours of the Monetary Museum from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Self-guided tours are limited to the Monetary Museum and do not need to be scheduled.
