This was my third time here and I’m still impressed. It’s a free tour. Leave your phones and other electronics in your car because you can’t bring them in. You watch a brief film and then do an audio tour of the facility where you...More

We thoroughly enjoyed touring the facility. There were 2 very well-done exhibits: one on the history of US currency and the second on the printing process. The 15-minute movie was a good intro leading into the factory tour. It is absolutely amazing to see millions...More

Everyone should take a tour of the Bureau. It is very interesting to learn about where and how we get our printed money.

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.
