The Fed Experience is a free educational museum brought to you by the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. Simulations and interactive exhibits take you on a journey that explores the power of your decisions on your quality of life, the impact of your choices on the economy, and the role of the Federal Reserve in the economy.

The Fed Experience highlights the growth of living standards, the importance of price stability and the Fed’s role in the economy.

Educational Programs
