With so much to do in DC, personally, I would leave this off your list. The tour started with a "security" dude (not the normal Special Police that are everywhere) rushing up to my wife in the lobby as she was turning off her cell...More
This is one of two locations in the US where our money is made. I think they said something like 1.1 billion dollars is printed here each day, so it's cool to see and worth the stop. Tickets are handed out from the ticket booth...More

We had prearranged tickets through the senator’s office to see the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Unfortunately, all the federal agencies and schools in DC were shutdown due to a 3” snow storm. We ended up forfeiting our scheduled tour and waited for the public...More
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

Yes, non-US citizens are allowed in - they do not ask for any sort of ID, you just have to put bags through an x-ray belt and walk through a metal detector (like at the airport).
