Went with the family to do something inside. Lots of security. You CANNOT bring phones or cameras as a result. There was not crown when we went, but they do a security check just like at the airport so plan on spend time to go through that. Took about 1 1/2 hours to go through the self guided tour. I... More

If you are in the Fort Worth area, the Bureau is worth a visit. Just be sure to check their website to make sure they are allowing tours. They are also closed to the public on Mondays.

This attraction is relatively unknown in Ft Worth, but it is a very interesting place to visit. They give tours but do not give free samples! Reservations are not required. You must go through security similar to the airport. Whether you enjoy seeing how things are made or not - you will surely enjoy this tour. It is a no... More

I took my 9 year old son to the BEP today just for something to do that was easy on the budget. It only cost me some gas and a few bucks in the gift shop. We spent about an hour and 45 minutes there total. We watched a quick movie before the tour and then received instructions on how... More

I've lived in North Texas for 23 years and have passed this facility many times.....finally my friends Jan, Jeri and I got to tour it. All I can say is WOW! There is ample parking, nice entry space, courteous guards (they are everywhere!), cool bus shuttles, well-designed exhibits, great gift shop, and the best of all is the self-paced tour... More

Can something good that does not cost anything come from the government? Yes this is a outing for all ages. You have good parking, air conditioned shuttles, and a terrific two story clean and modern self guided tour for free. Handicapped access with elevators available. The second floor has a 15 minute movie and actual working process of making money.... More

We decided to stop here on way home to Kansas City from San Antonio. We were glad we did. We spent about 3 hours touring the plant and viewing the exhibits. We were three adults, but I thinks kids in the 8+ age would also enjoy it. I know they had several scavenger hunt type games aimed at different age... More

This tour is amazing! I can not believe you actually get to see the money being "made"! We did not have a single negative to report, you can go at your own pace, the audio explanation is easy to use and understand (even our 9 year old enjoyed that part), the employees are all extremely friendly. It was just an... More

My husband wanted to do this for his birthday and I thought I'd be bored out of my mind, but I actually thought it was very interesting. I learned a lot about the history of currency, the different kinds, and why it is the way it is today. There is a self guided tour where you can actually see the... More

If you are in the DFW area, this a place you must visit. There is no admission fee, and the self guided tour is excellent. You get to see money being printed! There are also several exhibits outside the printing area and a very nice gift shop. We went there the first time on a school field trip, but have... More
