THE MONEY MUSEUM AT THE CHICAGO FED

Not to be outdone, the Chicago Fed has a museum as well. Unfortunately, their website says it's temporarily closed. -Editor

The Money Museum at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago is a great way to spend a morning or an afternoon for a no-cost learning adventure. It's located inside the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank which is one of a dozen federal reserve banks serving our nation.

Inside, you'll find dozens of exhibits about United States currency. You can view this display of one million dollars in $20 bills.
