Money Museum Tour

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago's landmark building at the corner of South LaSalle Street and West Jackson Boulevard in the city's financial district has a rich architectural history.

The Bank building was completed in 1922. It was designed by the firm of Graham, Anderson, Probst and White, which was responsible for developing many of the city's architectural landmarks including the Wrigley Building, the Shedd Aquarium, the Merchandise Mart and the Continental Illinois Bank building, which is directly across the street. The building's front facade, with its Corinthian colonnades rising 65 feet, was designed to produce "the impression of dignity and strength, in harmony with the power and purpose of the institution," according to a newspaper of the day.

Located in a section of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the Money Museum features historic currency, interactive games, and many other exhibits about the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the Federal Reserve System.

All guests are required to go through security and have a government issued id when they arrive at the building. All guests will need to go through metal detectors.
