About

At the award-winning Economy Museum at the St. Louis Fed, understanding the economy and money comes to life in a truly dynamic way. The museum allows you to engage in a hands-on journey through interactive exhibits, games and videos that cover topics ranging from inflation to banking to the global economy. Our newest gallery, The Vault, focuses on all things money related including how money is designed, security features of different bills and how long different bills last. You can also test your strength and try to lift a 28 pound genuine gold bar! Walk-ins and groups welcome.
