Get your monetary groove on at Chicago's own Money Museum, housed where else but the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago at 230 South LaSalle Street in Chicago's financial canyon. The depositary home to literally Billions of Dollars, the Federal Reserve is one of twelve banks that form the central banking system of the United States. The Money Museum offers great displays on the history of our currency and monetary system. Check out the money shredders that literally destroy $10 Million a year - and take some home as a souvenir. Check out what $1 Million in dollar bills looks like as a single cube of bills weighing in at over 2,000 pounds. Take your picture with a briefcase filled with a $1 Million . See how big $50,000 in coins can be.
Best part: the Money Museum is FREE.... as is that souvenir of shredded money amounting to hundreds of dollars of currency.
