  • It is a great place to learn all about U.S. paper currency.  You can see millions of dollars being printed as you walk along the gallery overlooking the production. You can buy uncut money and other interesting objects in the shop. No telephone is permitted. You can only photo outside of the bureau.
  • The was a fun informative tour. It's amazing how much work goes into printing our paper money. My kids really enjoyed see how all this worked.
  • This place is never open. Finally got a day off that wasn't a national holiday and thought it would be cool to check out. Went on Friday 12/30 and it was closed. No notice on their website! Better call before you make sure they are open before making plans.
  • Interesting place to learn about US currency. Tons to see and impressive audio tour...plus it's free! Make sure to leave all electronic devices in the car.
  • I spend most of my time here. My home away from home.
