“A central monetary authority has been a vital aspect of America’s financial history,” said David Cowen, president and CEO of the Museum. “We are excited to be marking the first 100 years of the Federal Reserve with an exhibition that aims to demystify this institution for the public.”
The exhibit tries to break down information about the Fed into more manageable pieces. For example, the central bank’s economic policies or its impact on everyday life. There is also an audio tour about 100 important objects related to the bank. QE lovers and detractors will also find the evolution of the Fed in response to various economic crises.
