I've been to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing twice on field trips with teenage students. You go through security check first then shuttled to printing facility. Very accommodating for persons with disabilities. One of the most fascinating and informative places I've ever visited. All free and interactive for kids and adults. There's a museum and theater to watch film... More

There is a very good visitors center at the Fort Worth Bureau of Engraving and Printing. You park in the lot, and after going through a security check (no cameras allowed!) you board a shuttle bus to the facility. There are two floors of displays, an informative movie, and a self-guided tour. The tour comes with an audioguide. (My father... More

Kids get to design and print their own money three weeks out of the year. Lots of stuff to read, fun facts about money. The self guided tour is very informative.

We're a homeschool family with two teenage boys. Recently we found ourselves in Fort Worth and decided to spend one afternoon at this federal facility, one of only two that prints U.S. paper currency. Be sure to leave your cell phone and camera in the car before heading to security. We were met by friendly security personnel, then boarded a... More

My teenagers fell in love with this place. It was interesting and full of information about how our money is made. If you ever wanted to see a stack of $1,000,000, visit this place!

Facility was built with tours in mind using an elevated walkway with hand held speaker devices to understand what is going on. Federal police, bus drivers, line workers and all personnel are some of the friendlist US govt employees you will ever meet - must be the Texan in them. Should be a mandatory tour for kids, late elementary to... More

We happened to be there when the lady was piecing together damaged dollars. By the way, a million dollars worth of 20 dollar bills is a big stack. This self guided tour is great for kids. We took grandkids and they loved it, course they kept asking for samples.

I learned so much about the making of money - the currency - not the idea - and thought about many things that I had never considered before - Like how do you keep all that money from being stolen??? The audio guide was good - but would have been better if there had been an indication of where you... More
