I had no idea the process involved in printing our currency. We had a guided tour and it was most informative. Just wish they gave”to go bags” at the end!

If you are in Dallas/FW area, this is a must go for you. Admission and parking are free. Prepare to spend about 2-3 hours looking at how US currency is prepared, printed, and stored. You will be amazed, even if you are not from the...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.
