Informative and interesting

Got an up close look at how currency is manufactured. A very detailed tour and explanation of the total process. Very nice gift shop.

This is a very unique place to visit. Our tour was free and self-guided, so you can go at your own pace. Be aware you cannot take cell phones, electronic equipment, back packs, cameras, weapons (including knives, pellet guns, mace, etc.), explosives, food, and drinks. Leave these in the car. Everyone is subject to screening, even children. It is amazing... More

Nice presentation on the history of money and how it is made. Took about 2 hours. There are two car entrances. One for tours and one for employees. Can not take your phone or camera into the facility. #1 see movie before taking the self guided audio tour.

I have lived in Fort Worth for 15 years - and had no idea this was in town. I heard about it and had it on my to-do list for months - one day I actually visited. So interesting and educational! I can't tell you how many people I have encouraged to go - and bring your kids - only... More

Really interesting tour, it pretty cool to learn how our money is printed and processed. The gift shop is way over priced though, they sell containers of shredded cash for way to much money. After all it is worthless, it's just a novelty for crying out loud.

We took our out-of-town grandkids, ages 8 and 9, for a tour of "the money factory". There is free parking and the tour is free! Our grandson smashed his finger in the car door when we were getting out of the car and the police officer at the front desk actually had an ice pack! We went on an early... More

This is well worth the time to go and visit. The atmosphere is child friendly and my grandchildren ages 4-10 were interested in the entire process. There is not a cost to tour the Bureau of Engraving and Printing which was great!

Visited on a rainy, windy, cold day in May. Yes, I never would have believed it if someone had told me Texas could be cold. Be prepared to leave all your electronic stuff in your car itself. I was expecting them to actually ask us for IDs but they didn't. You can then take a minibus to the main building.... More

If you go during the week you probably don't need to call for a tour time. They indicated you would for a weekend tour. Be prepared to leave all your electronic devices in the hot car....don't take them if you don't need them. You will go through security and take a short shuttle ride inside this high security facility. It... More

We all seemed to really enjoy the self-guided tour and all the sights to see. It kept our 10-year-old and 13-year-old pretty reasonably entertained.
