The Money Factory! Great free tour to learn about how US currency is printed!

Ever wondered what the process was for US currency printing? There are only two locations for printing currency in the US and one is in Ft Worth and the other in DC. The Ft Worth... read more

Ever wondered what the process was for US currency printing? There are only two locations for printing currency in the US and one is in Ft Worth and the other in DC. The Ft Worth location offers free daily tours where you can actually see the our US currency being printed. The tours are self guided and free and very... More

The video explaining the whole process was interesting and educational and helped you to understand what you were seeing during the self guided tour afterwards. The tour itself could probably be improved as the explanations on the audio wand were very long and boring at times. I usually started walking to the next window still listening to the previous window's... More

At a minimum it is educational. Free is good! Learn the latest about those bill in you wallet or purse. Limited hours, so make sure it is open. Tours can be full, possible wait a bit. It is a Federal Facility. Free parking, but know what to not bring in, it is posted. I've taken out of town guests here.... More

Excellent visitor center and self guided tour. A little technical for small fry but enough hands on experience to interest elementary kids and extremely educational for everyone. Your tax dollars at work!

Free tour of the facility provided. A moderate amount of walking is required. Very informative and the staff is courteous. Near Alliance Town Center. If you like money, put it on your to-do list.

This was a great experience to learn how our money is made. I brought my daughter to learn just how much goes into this process. Loved the self guided tour as we could watch and go at our own pace. Don't pass up this free tour to learn about this.

I had seen documentaries on US Mints on public TV, but don't pass up the chance to see it for yourself. The one on Fort Worth prints currency, no coins here. You get to see the entire process from raw paper to stacks upon stacks of ready to go printed green backs. I learned a lot about the printing process... More

I had the absolute pleasure of visiting the Bureau Of engraving and Printing out of Forth Worth, Texas. Me and my wife could not believe the operation and attention to detail it takes to print our money. Of course, this is a very secure facility and no cameras or cell phones are allowed. However, different from TSA at an airport,... More

Self guided tour is very interesting and informative on how our nations currency is made. From how the paper is made, to printing and packaging, this tour is well worth the few hours you will spend here. To top it off, it's totally free!!
