The Money Museum – 230 S LaSalle St., Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. (312) 322-2400 chicagofed.org Closed on the weekend. Be prepared to show ID (18+ only) and have your bags go through x ray machine and each person go through airport style metal detector. At 1:00 they have a speaker who tells a little of the museum & etc.
Q-tips say: It is all about money! Learn about our federal reserve and money. Good for kids over 5 or 6 because they have a “kids treasure hunt” and have many interactive exhibits. They can put their face on a $100. bill, test your skill on identifying counterfeit currency, see a cash vault window, etc.
Mrs. Q suggested, with a smile, “that since the museum is about money, they should have pay toilets.”
Then we were off to “Italian Village” restaurant for an early dinner.
