We visited the Bureau of E&P in September and had a fantastic experience. Our tour guide, Jack, was informative and kept the tour moving quickly. There was no wait for the tour and we were able to start our day with it because the tours...More

This was very interesting to go to one of the two places that they make our money in America. So much to learn, did you know our printed money has expiration dates on them ? yep they sure do. To here that 100,000 dollar bill...More

It was a very fun experience! There is no advance reservation, but during summer (or maybe other peak seasons too) limited number of tickets for the day are released in the morning. We got up early and came at the ticket booth opening time, though...More

Our grandson was amazed by how money was made - interesting and educational. We were able to get tickets late in the afternoon for the last tour - worked great with our timing of other places to see.

Tickets are inconvenient to get but the visit of the printing presses is truly interesting. My boys even started asking smart questions about money! Highly recommended. The shop (called the Money Shop!) is pricey but sells truly unique items. And no, they do not give...More

We visited the BEP with three kids ages 6,7 and 9. I got a tour reservation through our senator's office. The tour was interesting for anyone. If you have kids, it was good because it's relatively short (~30 min) and the kids can see actual...More

My daughters and I were trying to find something to do while my husband was in a meeting. We enjoyed the tour, but it was nothing special. It was educational and something different from the typical museum. It would be a must for Numismatist.

Fascinating tax payer operation. All other D.C. buildings maintained well and aloted currency to do so, except apparently here where they make the currency. Worth the trip. Overlook the outdated building, broken Windows galore at this writing as you enter, and the dated videos and...More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.
