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.

If you find your visit to DC too jam packed, this may be one of the activities you could handily do without. While interesting, the tour was just not as historically significant as many of the other options.

We went to the Bureau of Engraving/Printing one Friday morning on a quick sightseeing trip in DC. It was worth the time, and I recommend it. We were on the 9 AM tour on a busy morning. Our tour guide did a good job. I...More

We got a tour reservation thru our congressman, but at least when we were there in Oct, I thing you can just walk up for the tour. Fun to see all the money being printed, but much is done in big machines that hide the...More

We pre-booked through our state senator's office. I would recommend booking ahead of time for any tour in D.C. Check the website.

I believe there is a separate entrance. You might call ahead and get the name of the street to enter.

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.
