The Money Museum in Kansas City

The Visit Neighboring States Series


At the end of the hall in the Money Museum in Kansas City is the cash vault. No photography is allowed at that end.


I have said it before, Kansas City offers more attractions and fun for families with children than in any other major city within a three hour drive from central Iowa! TripAdvisor list 26 museums in KC.

The Money Museum was a fun and educational stop. We took a self guided tour and spent around 45 minutes enjoying the exhibits.

There are guided tours for larger groups which need to be reserved fifteen days in advance.  I overheard one tour guide and he sounded very knowledgeable. I would like to bring my children back to the Money Museum in Kansas City again when they are older.
