This is one of the less hectic places in DC when visiting, at least in October. Booked a tour through my Congressional Representative, however sometimes tours are available if they aren't busy. Best to go early in the morning. No photos on the tour itself....More

Your watch a video first. Then you take a catwalk tour of the building and see money being made from start to finish, there are actual workers making money as you tour. After there is a gift shop. My tour guide was very knowledgeable.

This is a fun and educational tour. You get to see how money is printed and learn how money is made to reduce counterfeiting. Go early to avoid lines. There is a gift shop where you can buy--money. I've been coming to Washington since 1968,...More
