Fodor's Review

This imposing marble edifice, its bronze entryway topped by a massive eagle, was designed by Folger Library architect Paul Cret. Its appearance seems to say, "Your money's safe with us." Even so, there's no money here, as the Fed's mission is to set interest rates and keep the economy on track. The stately facade belies a friendlier interior, with a varied collection of art and three special art exhibitions every year. Tours of the building are available for groups of

10 or more, all aged 18 years or more; they must be booked at least two weeks in advance.
