Bureau of Engraving and Printing

Just steps away from the National Mall and the Washington Monument, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing prints out over $450 million a day. Take a guided tour and see a stack of one million dollars.

The tour of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is very popular. People love to stare and fantasize about the presses that print out approximately $450 million a day. The huge machines press 7,000 sheets of currency an hour as well as other documents needed by the government like stamps, military certificates, and presidential invitations.

Unfortunately, unlike most of the other Museums and attractions in Washington, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing has no interactive displays.

Free tickets must be picked up in advance.
