This tour is outdated. They make it so difficult to get tickets to the tour and then you find out you only see machines. You have to get Ickes to the tour early in the morning on one side of the building. The tour starts...More

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

With so many places to see in Washington DC this is a secondary visit. First we had our congressman set up a tour. You are sent a pass which you have to show on entrance. The folks letting you in are very strict on keeping...More

Our family of 8 decided we wanted to see where our bucks are made! It was worth the wait, since you do have to reserve a time. Our guide was thorough and walked us through the entire process. The kids were impressed seeing the stacks...More

You can access the gift shop behind the people who are waiting to see the introductory movie. I think they prefer you do the tour and then the tour group ends up in the gift shop. Not much of a gift shop however. Doubt that... 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.
