Default Federal Reserve Museum! *coins to drool on

Don't know how well it's known, but I thought I would share.

This past weekend I took a little trip with my best girl to Kansas City, Missouri and we happened into the Federal Reserve's Money Museum while we were passing through. It's a building lobby of a museum, but there's a view of the vault and cash counting rooms which were impressive by any means. The main attraction inside was the Harry S. Truman Coin Collection. It was broken down by president and which coins they oversaw. Very cool to see if you're ever nearby. My pictures aren't great because of the glare, but I thought I would share a few to bring some awareness.

Enjoy!

You realize they will lock you up when they find that Garrett in your backpack, right?

After seeing those beauties, I'm not sure if I feel more inclined to go coin shooting, or just lie down and cry

Thanks all, I will note that this museum requires the security check before entry. So no sneaking that detector in

I don't know where in MD you are, but if you head to the National Museum American History, there's a coin room there. It has a great collection from all over the world to include stones and trinkets used by tribes.

Nice info. I was told that the Fed reserve does not search its coins. Now I am not so sure that is true.
