Money Museum

Lots of cold hard cash on hand

Hiding in the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, this little museum is good for a quick look-see. The most amusing exhibits include a giant glass cube stuffed with one million $1 bills (demonstrating the size of so much money, which weighs 2000 lb), and a counterfeit display distinguishing real bills from fakes. There’s a nifty photo opp where you can stand next to the $1 million-stuffed briefcase. You’ll also get a free bag of shredded currency to take home.

The museum is a school group favorite. Thirty-minute guided tours take place at 1pm. When you enter the building, look for the ‘visitors center’ sign (it doesn’t say ‘Money Museum’), and note you’ll have to go through a metal detector.
