We found out about this place when we first moved to Fort Worth and were expecting out of town guests. Everyone knows about the Stockyards,the Water Gardens and the Botanical Gardens. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing is a great place for everyone who visits. It's free; you learn so much about our currency; and you can tour at your... More

I have visited the mint in DC and the one in Fort Worth. I found the Fort Worth Mint very nice and very interesting. To learn about our currency and stamps was very interesting. Lots lots of history but it wasn't dry. Kids loved our tour and seeing our bills being made first hand. They have a great gift shop... More

My husband and I enjoyed watching the process of printing paper money. All the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The tour was great, especially considering it was completely free. It was really fun to get a birds-eye view of the process while spying on the employees working there. You'll need to leave your cell phone in the car, as... More

How did I live in the DFW area for 20 years before discovering this place? Took my nieces and nephews here when they were in town. Definitely a field-trip destination- very educational and informative. Be sure to check on their website http://www.moneyfactory.gov/tours/fortworthtxtours.html for up to date info before you visit. Their are rules about what you can and cannot bring.... More

I had been to 3 of the 5 US mints before touring the Fort Worth facility and it did not let me down. This was an excellent visit. You enter the area thru a security checkpoint that only took us a couple of minutes because I had read online what to bring and what not to bring. The check point... More

We decided to visit during the weekday because it is closed on weekends. Unfortunately, the large amount of schools attending with limited supervision disrupted our visit. The machinery and process for printing money is quite amazing.

My son's class had went here on a field trip and I went along. It was so neat to learn about money and it's history and to see them printing it. The kids loved it, it was one of the very few field trips that kept their attention, but hey who doesn't love money? :D The tour guides were very... More

Enjoyed a personal tour when a friend was receiving his 30 year pin. Enjoyed seeing everything up close except we didn't get to go in the vault.
