After two years, the Learning Center and Money Museum at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland has reopened its doors to visitors with new exhibits and updated safety protocols.
The focus of the interactive displays and exhibits is still on the value of money. Several new exhibits have been unveiled, such as a timeline visually depicting the history of the Federal Reserve System and informative displays focused on some of the Bank’s top employment areas, such as cash, Treasury Services, law enforcement, and cybersecurity. Educators planning field trips will enjoy the updated classrooms, new event space, and distance learning technology.
Many favorite installments remain: Guests can still experience the 23-foot tree covered in currency; virtually visit imaginary islands to trade oranges and coconuts for safe passage; and snap pictures of their faces on a dollar bill.
“We are thrilled to have visitors join us again,” says Khaz Finley, manager, Education and Museum Outreach, at the Cleveland Fed. “Those who have been here before will notice a brighter and more inviting space, and more accessible features, including a sensory room.”
Safety requirements have been updated for the protection and wellbeing of visitors and Bank staff. Masks are required for all entering the area. Group sizes will now be limited to six people or less.
The Learning Center is FREE and open to visitors of all ages Mondays through Thursdays from 9:30 a.m.- 2:30 p.m. Closed bank holidays. It is located in the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland on the corner of Superior Avenue and East Sixth Street in downtown Cleveland. Visitors can enter the Money Museum through its E. 6th Street entrance.
