We toured here one afternoon. My family with young kids learned a lot and it was eye opening to see everything that went into making the money. Security is tight, but friendly and the audio tour was educational

Everyone should take a tour of the Bureau. It is very interesting to learn about where and how we get our printed money.

It was a learning experience. Good to understand the history and the processes involved in the currency printing in the US. No eletronic devices are allowed. The visit is free and takes about 2-3 hours

You will be sent back out to your car to leave any phones, cameras, tablets, etc. Watch the movie before the tour to help give some background and kill some time. It is interesting watching the people work, but the information given through the handheld...More

I thought they might have had something in the guardhouse where you go through the metal detector. Best bet is to call them: (866) 865-1194 This number is on the website too.

We, and others that I noticed, left our cell phones in our car. We assumed that security was such here that we had nothing to worry about.
