‘The Fed,’ which resembles a cross between a Greek temple and a Soviet-era bunker, is the Olympus of the Gods of the American Economy. Unfortunately, you won’t see too much fiscal action on tours; these focus on the Fed's art collection, part of which is displayed in the atrium of the Eccles Building. The permanent collection is a survey of American art from the 1830s to the present. The group also presents rotating exhibitions of borrowed art on varied themes like currency design. Call to reserve at least five days in advance.
