Attn: The Guided tour now has a waiting list. Please feel free to put yourself on the waiting list. If there are enough people who join the waiting list, I will arrange another guided tour group.
Children grades 3 and up can go on the guided tour. Children beneath the 3rd grade level can come in the museum but will take a self-guided tour. We are requesting chaperones to go with the older children whose parents will be on the self-guided tour with their younger children. If you are attending and have older children please let me know if you would be interested in being a chaperone.

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.
