There is nothing like it. You walk along an elevated corridor to look down on US paper money being printed. You see the operation from four different points. The tour runs about 45 minutes. You must go with and stay with a guide. No photos....More

Normally you must get a ticket to visit. However, in December tickets weren't necessary. The gift shop where you enter and wait for your tour also has several displays relating to American currency. Take the time to view them. It will give you a good...More
