Great place for children of all ages and for adults to see how money is printed. Good displays of past history of money printing and most interesting how money is recovered when it has been damaged, partly destroyed or even found after many years in a partial state of decay. Well worth the trip and time to see a modern... More

Get a complete rundown on the printing of our paper currency. See millions of dollars in stacks (behind glass) but which are no good until printed with a serial number. Guided tours and also some interactive displays and a gift shop. I like the fact that it's free! Leave everything in your trunk though - strict security.

My parents were in town and we were looking for local attractions / things to do and while I knew the Bureau of Printing and Engraving was 5 miles away I had never considered it to be high on my tourism list. I was wrong. The tour is interesting and informative. Kind of neat to see where money is printed... More

If you want to know more about the process of making your money go here for a tour. You might be able to pick up an investment in the shop.

I think it was more interesting to me than the Grandsons 3rd Classmates. I lked the self tour recorders given to each one so they could all hear the same story, but some had questioons that could not be answered until end of tour.

Watch the video in the theater and then take the self guided audio tour for a good background before exploring the rest... Leave your cellphone and other electronics in the car, they will not grant you access with them...

We learned all about how money is made and its history. Great place to spend a few hours or educate your kids about currency. Fun to watch millions and billions of dollars go down the assembly line.

Most of the US money printed is done at this facility and supplies the world with US currency. It is awesome to see what goes on and how the money is made and have a bird's-eye view of billions of dollars ready to be delivered to the market.

We came here and I didn't know what to expect. You get a headset to listen to at every section. It's a self-guided tour. Very interesting. You're on the top level looking down and seeing how things work as you listen through your headset. This is something I'd recommend if you're in the area. This is one of those hidden... More
