information overload. saw how paper money made. self-guided tour. short introductory movie. excellent interactive exhibits. only two BEP, ft worth & Washington, dc. heavy duty security. no electronics of any kind, no weapons. vetting process to work there 4-6 months. open 24/7/365. gift shop almost as interesting. uncut sheets of real money for sale.

We went here during the week but arrived at 8:30 when they opened, hoping to beat any field trip groups. There were about 8 people touring while we were there and it was enjoyable. As we were leaving, groups of kids were coming in and it seemed to be getting a little busier. The factory tour would have been boring... More

I was able to go with my kiddo's class on his field trip to this attraction today and it was great! The visitor center was very well organized and the staff were great. During the tour the employees working on the floor were waving at the kids. One employee even pretended to make a paper airplane out of a sheet... More

Didn't get to make our own money. Could not take any pictures. Interesting to see how money was made. Audio units were a plus.

This was a really great tour to see how paper money is printed, start to finish. Our family was 2 seniors, 2 adults, and 2 teens with some time to burn in Ft Worth area. The security to enter the facility is serious, so be prepared and understand that before you get there. You cannot take any food, drink, cameras,... More

That's what the introduction video says about the Ft Worth Bureau of Engraving & Printing. Definitely an interesting and worthwhile trip to see and learn how printed money is made.

We missed our chance in Washington DC to visit the only other bureau in the US - that is a tricky timing to get in there, so made a point of getting to this destination on our Texas visit. But the Fort Worth experience was well organized - leave your cell phones in the car! We arrived on a Tuesday... More

It's surprising how cool it is to see our money being printed and learn how much thought and work goes into designing money to be both durable and protected from counterfeiting. It was fun to walk around above the machinery and the workers were all so friendly, waving and smiling at us and our kids. Even our older sons, ages... More

This was incredible. Money was printed right before our very eyes. Guide tour was just right. Learned a lot about money and printing. Throughly enjoyed the couple hours.

Our four children--ages 10-14--loved this! Free! Informative! Beautiful facility. The self-paced tour allows one to view money being printed. At the end, our kids were able to design their own bill and take home a glass plate and a print. It was a very cool and worthwhile stop. We stayed for 2 1/2 hours. Eat before you go. And, know...
