While visiting Atlanta we took a trip to visit the Federal Reserve Bank, learned a great deal about the federal reserve and saw the history of the bank and how money is processed. Well worth the trip and no cost.

Yes it is free and no appointment needed. They also provide a free locker because you can not carry any bags of any sort. You may want to check for holiday hours if you are going anytime soon.
