About

Welcome to the Jacksonville Branch’s Monetary Museum. The museum features displays of historical currency, information on the Federal Reserve's role in the economy, and an exhibit on the Fed’s cash-processing functions. Guided group tours include a trip to the Bank’s cash-processing area.

A tour of the museum will include a presentation that provides in-depth lessons on the role of the Federal Reserve in the US economy.

  • Learn how and why the Fed conducts monetary policy and how its actions affect your life.
  • Hear about the Fed's important roles in bank supervision and regulation.
  • Get the big picture of the many ways the Fed provides payments system services to help our economy run smoothly and maintain the stability of the financial system.

Then, you can take a look inside our cash-processing operations, where millions of dollars are counted, sorted, or shredded daily.

All this and more awaits you at the Jacksonville Branch Monetary Museum.

The Branch offers only guided group tours; no walk-in visitors are allowed. Groups must have a minimum of 10 members for a tour, with a maximum of 30 people. Free group guided tours of the Monetary Museum may be scheduled by appointment only. Tours are offered on select Tuesdays at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. (ET). We can schedule tours only for high school and college groups and financial institutions. Please be aware that the tour calendar gets booked several months in advance. Keep this in mind when you request a tour date. We will contact you to discuss the availability of your requested date and to confirm a scheduled tour.
