Trip Planner: USA / Texas / Fort Worth / Bureau of Engraving and Printing
See the entire paper money printing process from beginning to end at one of only two places in the country at Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Take a self-guided tour of two floors of interactive exhibits on the history and art of currency production. You'll see actual bills being made as you walk across an enclosed walkway suspended over the production floor. Watch the high-definition film on the process in the theater, or stop by the gift shop for souvenirs like dollar bill memorabilia or an uncut sheet of bills. Adults will need to bring an ID; the site recommends allowing 30 minutes to pass through security (although it rarely takes that long). Use our Fort Worth day trip planning site to add Bureau of Engraving and Printing and other attractions to your Fort Worth vacation plans.
Bureau of Engraving and Printing reviews
The tours are informative. They won't let you bring cameras, and I recommend only carrying a wallet on the tour. You won't be disappointed! The currency printing process is fascinating.

Truly loved how loved how this is for young and old. Once a year they have the Philadelphia Mint come and show the other side of how money is made. Great Experience.

Awesome Place and Super Friendly Staff and Officers. Cameras not allowed. Nice Exhibits. Great movie at the theatre to give an overall idea about how the dollar printing happens. The audio tour around the facility is well detailed. Enjoyed and worth the visit. This is one of the two printing and engraving facility. DC has the other one. Must visit :)
The second of only two sites in the country. An informative way to spend 90+ minutes. The introductory audio-visual presentation overwhelms one. Then comes the walking tour (with audio narration in several languages upon request) which can be confusing too if one was asleep during the A-V presentation. Don't forget to wave back at the dedicated employees on the floor who wish to cheer you up. The exhibit areas (1st & 2nd) floors finally drill the key processes and operations, with some touch and feel parts, at which time you may want do the whole thing again! Let the kids participate in the Treasure Hunt game. Wish there was some token appreciation for those who go through the hoops. A "Hecho en Chine" obligatory store on premises with a few select trinkets that are not available elsewhere.
