Federal Reserve and Money Museum Tour

Today we joined some of our homeschool group on a tour of the Federal Reserve Bank and Money Museum in Cleveland, OH.

The kids learned about types of money that have been used throughout history. They learned what “fiat” money is and what the role of the Fed is in regulating our money system. There were a lot of neat hands on exhibits in the museum, though they were disappointed to learn they had to visit one of the mints to see actual money being made.
