My advice is on how to get tickets. The tickets are free but are required for the 35-40 minute tours. Every year I have students competing at a national contest in Maryland, and the students and their parents have two or three days for sightseeing in Washington, DC. This year I reached the ticket dispensing booth for the Bureau of Engraving tour that is inconveniently located on Raoul Wallenberg Pl NW on the opposite side of the tour entrance on 14th and C St. The easiest access to the ticket booth is by going between the Holocaust Museum and Bureau of Engraving.
For a teacher, they gave me 20 tickets for my group, but usually they give out four per person. Withihall hour, all of the tickets were given out.
