We really enjoyed this tour! It was so amazing seeing money being made and the process that is envolved. It was very informative and we couldn't believe everything that goes into just making one dollar! Definitely go!

The general public tours are only every 45 minutes, and the lines are long - and outside in the cold. We waited for 30 minutes, but were unable to get in. There's a 40-person limit for every tour. The next one was in 45 minutes,...More

We enjoyed the tour. We arrived at 9 during the week and joined the first tour. Kids liked it. It seemed like promoting the gift shop was a high priority! Loved seeing the workers!

This place was great. We toured it this past week. Tour shoes how they print money, monitize it, then cut and wrap it. One of the neatest tours we've been on in DC. Be sure to turn your phone off or they will confiscate it....More

This tour was short and sweet. Not overly exciting but definitely interesting to see money being made. It’s great if you have an hour to kill between other activities.

I'm glad we went but overall the tour could've been a lot faster! It was a little slow especially with little kids.
