See one of the places US currency is produced. Super secure. No phones or photography for understandable reasons. Informative and full of friendly folks. It’s free so there’s not a reason not to do it.

Visited with my parents and my 9 year old son and we all had a great time. No cameras, cell phones or apple watches, but a fit bit is ok. You walk through security like at an airport but did not have to remove shoes....More

We went here on a school field trip with my daughter. it was a pretty cool place, and it's amazing to see piles and piles of dollars on pallets. They also have a gift shop so bring your own dollars.

staff were friendly, you could wander the stations at your own pace. The audio device was clear and easy to hear. Gift shop had some cheesy stuff with stiff prices, it was the only disappointment. Parking and shuttle were nearby

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.
