Atlanta Federal Monetary Museum
Mo to Fr from 09:00 AM to 04:00 PMLocated within the Federal Reserve’s grand marble building on Peachtree Street, the Federal Reserve Bank’s Monetary Museum provides a hands-on look at the history of money and the role of the Federal Reserve in regulating banks and setting monetary policy in the United States. The experience starts with "The Story of Money" exhibit which traces the evolution of money from the barter system to modern currency. Gold nuggets, rare coins, antique currency notes and other unusual items illustrate the story. You’ll also learn about the history of banking, the future of currency and see a real gold bar. Finally, see your money in action as you peek inside the Fed’s daily cash-processing operations where millions of dollars are counted, sorted or shredded daily.
