Money Museum at the Federal Reserve Bank, Denver Branch

Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City Denver Branch

Before we left Denver, we wanted to visit the Money Museum at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Denver Branch.  It was a only a few minutes away from our hotel, free to enter, and you didn’t have to make an appointment to get in.  Free + easy = awesome when you travel.. lol.  We wanted to visit the Denver Mint, but you had to make reservations months ahead, and we were not that prepared.. hahahah.

After going through a metal detector, we entered the lobby area.  From here I could see the huge stack of money showcased in the corner.  $30,000,000.00 just sat there behind glass.  All in beautiful hundred dollar bills (though I read on Yelp that most of it was fake and only the bills you could see were real… boooooo).  I have to admit, we stood there for much longer than we should have. I mean it was just money.. soo much moneyyyyyy.

We watched a short film in another room, and came back out to look at all the older bills.  I had never seen denominations so high.  $100,000.00 on 1 piece of paper!  At the end of the self guided tour, you get each get a little bag of shredded money.  I forgot to take a picture of it, but it was basically shredded money in a cello bag.

If you’re in Denver and have an hour to kill, head on over to the Federal Reserve Branch Bank.  It’s a quick tour and best of all.. free :D
