Interesting to watch process of making money. You walk across an enclosed catwalk lead by a knowledgeable guide who explains each phase of the process. No photography allowed once you leave the orientation film area. Amazing to watch and hear about all the special security...More

We were super happy we participated in a tour here! It gives you a whole new perspective and appreciation for our money! They have a limited number of timed tour tickets per day and they are given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Since tickets...More

We liked this tour and book it through our senator's office. Where else can you see stacks and stacks of cold hard cash!? It's short and won't take up a huge part of your day. The Holocaust museum is right next door, so if you...More

Interesting exhibits and movie prior to the tour. Guide was informative and tour was fascinating. Both adults and children will enjoy seeing how sheets of paper turn into currency. Fun gift shop at the end. A must-see tour.

Don't bother going here. Security and staff were rude. The tour was poor - dated information displays combined with a tour guide who spoke in an unclear sing-song manner like a retro talk show host made me feel like I had stepped back into the...More

Ugh. I did not care for this tour. It could have been so much better but it was very short, not much to see at all and not even a lot of interesting information. It might depend on who your guide is; I had someone...More

You need to get here early to get your free tickets or book them in advance. We got our tickets at 12 for 12:45. While we waited we quickly went into the Holocaust museum to check out the gift shop. When doing this tour, no...More

Yes, non-US citizens are allowed in - they do not ask for any sort of ID, you just have to put bags through an x-ray belt and walk through a metal detector (like at the airport). The Bureau is not open on weekends or... More
