Have you ever wondered what $30 million looks like? Well, you can take a peek at Denver’s very own Money Museum. No, this is not part of the U.S. Mint on West Colfax Avenue. However, it is part of the Federal Reserve of Kansas City – Denver Branch’s community outreach efforts.
The museum is located at 1020 16th St. (across from Rock Bottom Brewery on the 16th Street Mall.) The Denver Money Museum offers a “wealth of opportunities” to explore the nation’s financial system and the functions of the Federal Reserve.
It’s not as boring as you might think. You can take a peek at millions of dollars, design your own one-of-a-kind currency, test your skills in determining a real $20 bill from a counterfeit and check out historical currency dating back to 1775.
Plus, on your way out, grab a FREE bag of shredded money.
The Money Museum is open for walk-in visitors and self-guided tours Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding bank holidays (of course!)
Because it is located within a Federal Reserve, it is CLOSED on Saturdays and Sundays.
Admission is FREE. All guests who are 18 years or older are required to present a valid government-issued photo I.D.
