Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Show Me The Money!
Over 24.8 million notes a day with a face value of approximately $560 million are made in the US currency's printing center. Watch and learn how real money is printed, stacked, cut, and examined for defects through their free and informative 30 minute docent-led tours which are offered every 15 minutes on weekdays from 9am - 2pm. Tours from March through August require timed entry passes; September through February do not. And sorry, no free samples are given.
