Chicago’s Hidden Museum

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has an excellent museum in it.  But you cannot easily tell from the outside.  Staff at the FRB of Chicago’s Money Museum say this is because the bank will not allow any external signage.

The musuem has something for everyone.  For people interested in history there are many interesting exhibits.  They cover the creation of the Federal Reserve and the high-powered bank’s activities over the years.  For those who more enjoy every day curiosities it is worth a stop just to have your picture taken with the “million dollar cube.”  This is a large spinning square container packed with one million one dollar bills.

Admission is free.  So the Money Museum makes a great stop for tourists and long-time residents alike.  The Federal Reserve Bank’s Money Museum is located at 230 South LaSalle Street.
