Welcome to the Miami Branch's Monetary Museum. Explore historical currency from around Florida as well as large-denomination currency no longer in use. The museum also features interactive, multimedia videos on the history and functions of the Fed. Guided tours will also include a visit to the Bank's cash-processing area where visitors will learn about the Fed's cash function.
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 look inside our cash-processing operations, where millions of dollars are counted, sorted, or shredded daily. Visitors will receive a souvenir of shredded currency.
All this and more awaits you at the Miami Branch Monetary Museum.
