The tour at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is excellent. It should be enjoyed by both adults and kids. It is a great place to learn all about U.S. paper currency. We truly enjoyed seeing millions of dollars being printed as we walked along the gallery that overlooked the production floor. This experience also includes an introductory film and... More

One of the great attractions for adults and kids. See your money printed before it goes through your hand and is taxed and returned to Washington. Its a lot of fun to watch them make your money!

Entertaining tour that lets one appreciate how our money is printed. The tour moves well through the different stages of printing and quality assurance. No tickets are needed during the winter months.

It was very cool and exciting to see money being printed, highly recommend, book months in advance to your trip because it books out fast, and its complicated to get in.

This is where our Dollar is printed. You see in the tour where it is printed and how it is printed. You have to get tickets the day of by standing in line. My kids loved seeing millions and millions of dollars being made.
