It was really interesting to see each step in how paper currency is made, with a view of workers completing each task right there below us. All the employees there were knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. The tour is self-guided and the audio at each "stop"...More

Found this on Google but didn't expect such an interesting tour. There is a museum on 2 floors where you can learn everything about how dollar bills are made and about their history. But the most interesting part is the tour on which you can...More

I thought they might have had something in the guardhouse where you go through the metal detector. Best bet is to call them: (866) 865-1194 This number is on the website too.
