This is only one of two locations that actually printed US currency. It is amazing to see how our currency if printed, and they also have a great display for the history of our currency, so it is great for history enthusiasts, too. We took a school group with several teachers, but would recommend it for anyone. The tour guide... More

I went with my boys and a friend with her kids and they learn and enjoy the visit. They saw how the money was made in the building, watch a film about the process and play with some hands on activities. We learn new things and the security of the area gives you a feeling that you are part in... More

We took a group of young girls there and had a great time. I have also been at the facility in DC and the FW plant was designed for tours whereas the DC tour something that has been added. Both experiences were great but the FW plant was better.

I'm glad that I finally made it to this tour because it was very interesting. We spent about 1 1/2 hours here, but I could easily have stayed longer if we didn't have another appointment to make. Given the subject matter (money), it's not surprising that security is tight. You have to pass through some sort of body scanner that... More

This is a self guided tour and was very interesting seeing them in process of printing the bills. My pre teen niece and nephew enjoyed it. I have been to mint in Philadelphia and this was a much better tour if you had to compare. Check their website for closures and holidays.

Great tour and educational. Free! Kids enjoyed watching the process of money being created. The tour is self guided. The upper floor is a view of the factory. The bottom floor is an educational exhibit with some hands on activities.

So cool! Who doesn't want to see money being made. Great learning for our girls (8 & 10). We had a blast!

This is a nice free tour. There is a check in station just outside the facility with a broadcast recording letting visitors know the “dos and don’ts.” Once checked in, there is a bus ride to the main building. It is handicap accessible and a wheelchair can be provided. You will love the professional but pleasant dispositions, smiles and helpful... More
