From its humble origin in the small Bohemian town of Joachimsthal to its omnipotent omnipresence in everyday life, the American dollar has certainly come a long way. In fact, the word 'dollar' derives from this original coin fashioned in the 16th Century, as it was called 'Tolar' in Czech and 'Thaler' in German. Nonetheless, this museum located in downtown K.C. tells the public everything they need to know about the Federal Reserve System of banking in the U.S. and the museum itself is located inside a federal branch. Some of the highlights include visits to the massive cash vault, the Truman coin collection, interactive displays and they even give you a free bag of shredded money to take home as a souvenir! Admission is free and it's open during normal working hours.
