"Federal Reseve Bank of Piladelphia" Philadelphia Things to Do Tip by Suzanne123

Philadelphia Things to Do: 839 reviews and 1,524 photos

Free exhibit Money in Motion

Learn about: inflation, recessions, counterfeit money, and more.

Takes about 15 minutes unless you are very geeky and want to really get into understanding the details, but you probably already are knowledgeable then.

You will need to go thru the new "peek-thru-you" chamber used rather than being patted down by security.

It was very helpful to learn about fake money. Afterwards I left and looked carefully at money I received and found that plenty of it is indeed phony photocopy jobs. It is helpful to not accept 100 dollar bills unless from the bank. And refuse money that has been written on, or is torn and dirty. If the image on the money is blurry in any way then it's probably fake too.
