We actually toured this for our honeymoon as we were not to far from it. We both loved it and thought it was really neat. Plus it is FREE. Security is high but understand why.

What a cool tour to learn what we use everyday in everything we do. The security is wonderful so follow the rules! We learned allot about the steps and time it takes to make our bills. Very Worth it for all ages and it's free!

This was a fascinating tour! My 7 and 11 year old were enthralled with all the rooms, processes, and huge machinery that are used to print our country’s paper money. Well worth a visit!

This is a free attraction which we stumbled upon since we were in the area. You park in the lot, and catch a shuttle to the main building where you go through an x-ray machine. There's a video to watch (it starts every 20 minutes)...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.
