Don't bother going here. Security and staff were rude. The tour was poor - dated information displays combined with a tour guide who spoke in an unclear sing-song manner like a retro talk show host made me feel like I had stepped back into the...More

Ugh. I did not care for this tour. It could have been so much better but it was very short, not much to see at all and not even a lot of interesting information. It might depend on who your guide is; I had someone...More

You need to get here early to get your free tickets or book them in advance. We got our tickets at 12 for 12:45. While we waited we quickly went into the Holocaust museum to check out the gift shop. When doing this tour, no...More

I remember going to the Bureau when I was 10 and loved it. Took my kids and they all agreed the most favorite destination. The 10-13 year olds couldn't understand the Jefferson memorial and the foundations laid by our forefathers. But this was a good...More

I remember this one as a kid and it still was as great as I remember from 1985. My kids 13 and 10 loved it. See how they print and inspect paper currency. As many of the reviews state you WILL need to get in...More

You have to be determined to go here! Seems ridiculous that they don't have a reservation system. I would've paid to secure the tour. As with the U.S. Mint tours, they just want to see how badly you want to visit i guess?? Anyways, ticket...More

So, just a quick note to say that when they say to arrive early for the 8am ticket distribution they aren’t kidding. At 7:30 the line was already half a block long. By 8am it was curving around the corner. This was high school spring...More

My only gripe with this is that unlike some of the other popular attractions in D.C. you cannot order/reserve tickets in advance online. You MUST line up at least half an hour before the booth opens at 8:00 am to ensure you get the timed...More

Yes, non-US citizens are allowed in - they do not ask for any sort of ID, you just have to put bags through an x-ray belt and walk through a metal detector (like at the airport). The Bureau is not open on weekends or... More
