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

Took three teens to this and we were very well entertained. Be prepared to see them without their phone since we were required to put in car. Highly recommend this FREE family trip.

Went there not knowing what to expect. Very informative. Well organized. Learned about processes and enjoyed it. Highly recommend, although the gift Shop was disappointing, pricey with limited selection. Was trying to find samples of early paper money.

A trip to this facility is definitely worth your time! It is fascinating to see how our paper money is made and the many processes used to get the final product. Some days they have special exhibits. The day we visited, we were able to talk to the actual engravers and they could answer all of our questions. There is... More

Having previously worked for a bank and being familiar with receiving cash from the Federal Reserve and seeing mutilated bills brought in, this was the "rest of the story" from the beginning. First, be aware that cell phones or cameras of any type and/or any electronics are NOT allowed in the facility...leave them in your car. Purses ARE allowed, however... More

Kids wanted to rush through the tour but it was really interesting to see. Can't take photos unfortunately but you are in an enclosed catwalk like area viewing the plant floor below through windows with audio according to your area that you can listen via a phone like device that each person gets.
