A very informative and really interesting tour about money, money-printing and currency in the US. The Bureau of Engraving has another location (the main on) in Washington, DC and this is the place where all the money for the States is printed. Awesome!

You have to know, though that there is a very high security check before you get inside, so be sure to leave your cameras, tech-tools and anything that could be seen as a weapon. The tour lasts around 50/60 minutes, so its not so long, but is better to go on the early one, because here aren't so many people and you can catch more of what the guide says.

Don't miss it! See it!

Address:
9000 Blue Mound Rd, Fort Worth, TX 76131, USA
