Although the Money Museum is closed until Nov. 2021, you can experience it virtually via online digital exhibits, such as "Let Us Put Our Money Together: The Founding of America's First Black Banks." When the Money Museum reopens, families with school-age children can once again learn how paper money is made, how and when it's destroyed, how credit works, what Federal Reserve banks do, how to spot counterfeit bills and more, all at no charge. Hands-on activities include creating your own "money" and moving a knob along a track to see how much money you lose paying off a loan over six years vs. one (a lot!). There's also a case with authentic and counterfeit bills, and if you can't tell the difference look for hints on the sides of the case. Plan on 30 to 60 minutes at most and rememberto take your free bag of shredded bills.
