The IMF Center's goal is to heighten public awareness and understanding of the IMF's role in today's global economy and the ways in which it serves its 184 member countries.

The Center features exhibits; DVD presentations; and a bookstore and giftshop. The Center is also the venue for economic and book forums and briefings by IMF staff.
