This museum run by the Federal reserve is one of the hidden treasures of Atlanta. We went after my middle school aged child had finished an economics unit. There is actually a lot to do here, from watching films to seeing how they sort, count and destroy old money to exhibits of currency from around the world. We spent a lot more time here than I would have thought and she really enjoyed it. They give you a free packet of shredded money to take home.
