Totally worth visiting! They call themselves the Money Factory -- quite appropriate since this is where US paper bills are printed!  The "museum" is only open Monday through Friday and has the most cumbersome tour process that I've experienced out of all the DC museums...More

A very interesting and free 40-minute tour that did not need advance reservations. Go in the morning when they are less busy. We watched $100 bills being printed and learned about all the exacting specifics that go into this process. No, alas, they do not...More

The exhibits and videos in the Bureau Visitor Centre provide a wealth of information about the history of the US currencies, and how the money was made, the presses and machines used, as well as changes in designs on the various bills. If you have...More

It's mostly a guided tour for about 25 minutes so one hour should be enough. There are a few displays in the ending area.
