The Fed Center: Exploring our Nation’s Central Bank—a permanent installation at the San Francisco Fed—designed to teach the public about the functions of the U.S. central bank through a series of guided hands-on and visually engaging experiences. Whimsical and thought-provoking elements in the exhibit include giant iconic representations of financial concepts, such as a free-floating sphere, a suspended safe, and a 14-foot tilting chair. The Fed Center also features one of the most comprehensive collections of U.S. currency in the country. Schedule your group tour now!
