What a great place! Clean, friendly folks, free!!!, not far from town, entertaining and educational too! You'll never believe what a dollar goes through before it's handed to you in the checkout lane at Walmart! Great for families, class trips, or rainy day side trips!

This is a great place for school age kids to go visit and learn about money. They learn how its made and how the government helps in the making and spending of money.

Go and see were they print US currency. Self guided tours now. Be sure to check the hours as they are limited. You will likely see more money here then you will see the rest of your life.

My husband and I took our 3 homeschooled kids to the BEP on our way out of town, headed home from Ft. Worth. Park in a lot, walk through security, ride a bus to the facility, go though another scan -- and you're there! Worth it, though...you are able to take an audio (handheld wand) tour through the facility, which... More

Of course my wife is an history teacher, but we thoroughly enjoyed it! And the price was right-you can't do much better than FREE! It is a must do!

With the "cell phone" like radio, we were able to stop and listen to each explanation along the way of visually viewing the money printing process. Everyone was soooo friendly, even the workers we observed on the floor below.

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.
