Money Museum

What should I bring with me?

Admission is free. Adult visitors age 18 and over must present a valid government-issued photo ID to enter. All visitors must go through our security screenings (think: airport security metal detectors). For a list of restricted items, see the Security Screening section on our website.

Where should the bus drop us off and park?

Buses can drop off and pick-up in front of our building at 230 S. LaSalle Street. Unfortunately, buses cannot park in front of the Money Museum. For parking options, please visit Chicago Parking Map | Downtown Chicago Parking Garages & Parking Lot.

Can we eat lunch at the museum?

Unfortunately, we do not have cafeteria space that is available for visiting groups and we do not allow open food or drinks in the Money Museum. There are many restaurant options nearby though!

Do you have any teacher resources to help us put together lesson plans before or after our visit?

For teacher resources, please visit our Educator Resources page.

What do I do if my group is larger than the 49 visitor limit?

The Money Museum limits group reservations to 49 people because that is the number of seats we have in our auditorium. We encourage larger groups to split into separate hour reservations. Half the group can visit the museum while the other half goes to lunch or visits a nearby destination in Chicago (such as the Willis Tower). If that cannot work for your group, please contact us. We’ll try our best to accommodate your group.
