Tour takes around 2 1/2 hours - if you stop and review the many displays available. Very interesting on how our money is made - as well as - all the safe guards to make counterfeiting as hard as possible to reproduce!

Very interesting and informative! I never realized how many steps were involved in printing our currency. The tour is self guided but very easy to follow. You can take as long as you want. Loved it!

I been here three different times with my children and friends. They have classes and activities for little kids to do. I have learned so much about the currency here how it's made and what it's made of. The security is tight so leave phones and possibly purses in the car. A must if you have kids and teenagers.

I went with my 2 younger sons (ages 5 and 9) who thought this was going to be boring. But they really loved it! It's a FREE tour. Lots of security measures taken, which I totally appreciate. No phones or cameras allowed inside at all. Or food or drinks. Bags are searched. Everyone was extremely friendly though. You get on... More

I went there with my family, including two kids aged 5 and 9, and we all enjoyed the visit. The facility gives you surprisingly detailed insights about how the US Dollar is manufactured, besides some exhibits you can walk around the visitor gallery and witness many parts of the process live. The entrance was free and the tour is self-guided... More

We took this tour on a hot July day, it was a "cool" way (on several levels) to spend a few hours. We parked in the visitors parking lot then took the shuttle to the building. The ladies in the group took their purses sans cell phones so we could shop the gift shop for souvenirs. It is fascinating to... More

Money making is so intricate! We enjoyed the displays and self guided tour. Look for the fun facts scattered around.

Got to see money from start to finish and even the kids though it was neat. On our visit we each got to hold a brick of $100s = $400000 not a everyday thing now kids want to see how they make coins it's nice to see when kids want to learn.

Great place to see how money is made and learn the history. About 30 min. drive north of Ft. Worth in the middle of horse corrals and fields. High sercurity, aviod large bags, cell phones, cameras and video recorders. You will get sent back to leave in your car. Free parking, shuttle and tour. History displays, theater, gift shop and...
