Great place to understand the process that makes your money green. Even got a chance to stand next to $1 Million in ten dollar bills and to compare how tall they would be in cash. Recommend you check it out, but need to obtain tickets to admission tours (free).

The ticket office is at the front of the building while the entrance to the tour is at the rear (5 min walk). Once inside there are loads of interesting facts fact boards on the walk through to the waiting... More

We arranged our tour through our local representative's office. We arrived for our tour and started the tour with a 10 minute video about the BEP. Our tour guide (Devon) then arrived and proceeded to take us through the tour. The tour consists hallways with windows looking down on the manufacturing room floor. We went through each of the various... More

Make sure to arrive early to get tickets for the tour. Short but informative tour. Could be made into a walk through for anytime instead of requiring a ticket.

We contacted our representatives office months ahead to get a tour arranged for the BEP. We really enjoyed the tour. The whole thing only takes about an hour and is well worth the time!

Short but fun. Free tickets but you need to get them in the morning the same day. No online reservations. Pls note that the tickets are distributed in the morning from 8am onwards on the rear side of the building, not at the entrance. I reached there at 8.30am and got tickets for 10.45. Parking can be found across the... More
