4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Took 3 older teens and a 6 yr. old to tour the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. I had no idea this place was even here, a friend recommended it. The self-guided tour was very interesting and informative. The staff took time to wave and show my little nephew some of the money that was printing. He loved it.

I have a 4 yr old ,8 yr old, and 13 yr old and they enjoyed this tour. The 4 yr old got a little restless but had room to walk around and see people at work so enjoyed it a little less than the older grandkids. This is good for a free tour for about 2 hours. The children... More

Everything is well planned, from the friendly ride from the parking lot to the self guided tour. All the employees were friendly and helpful. The informative movie was interesting but it is basically a tour of a printing press where they print money rather than newspapers or something else.

The bureau was hosting a special family event when we went. Which made it much more fun for my Granddaughters 10 and 11 yr. Regardless of the special event I strongly recommend the tour. The actual walking tour is self guided with audio thru a kind of cat walk hallway. The employees below wave and picked up sheets hot off... More

This was a well attended tour and was more interesting than the title of the attraction would first appear. This was a working exhibit so the money that is being produced is real and will go into circulation. The hand held guides were informative and you can walk around at your own pace. I also liked the interactive exhibits which... More

I went to Dallas with no real plan on what I was going to do, and happened upon this in a magazine a friend lent me to see what was around. It seemed interesting enough to chance a visit, so I decided to check it out. When you first walk in, there's two floors outlining the history of currency and... More

Just like what I saw on discovery channel. But not sure if I would pay to visit if it wasn't free. The tour is the best part and too back they didn't give you money after your visit.

The security is tight (of course) and once inside you can spend a couple of hours looking at everything in detail. The self-guided tour above the printing area is what makes it worth it all. To see our money go through each stage of development on it's way to become what we carry in our wallets is amazing. The interactive... More
