The BEP is currently CLOSED to visitors due to the pandemic. Tour reservations are not being accepted at this time, and a date has not been determined for when tours might resume. Congressional offices will be notified and this website will be updated in advance of a change in status.
Located on Blue Mound Road in Fort Worth, Texas, the BEP's Western Currency Facility produces more than half of the nation’s currency order. Visitors can see where billions of dollars are printed from an enclosed walkway, which is suspended above the production floor!
Available before or after the free self-guided tour, the experience includes an informative theater film, and visitors have the opportunity to walk through two floors of interactive exhibits and displays showcasing currency history and the intricate art of currency manufacturing. Also located in the visitor center is the Moneyfactory Gift Shop where the public can purchase souvenir items including uncut currency sheets and other specialty currency products. Restrooms and vending machines are available.
Annual employee craftsmanship demonstrations typically take place three times per year: during the Fort Worth School District spring break week, and the last full weeks of June and July. During these special events, BEP employees share the history of the U.S. paper currency printing process through live demonstrations of their artistry and craftsmanship.
Tuesday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The last tour of the day begins at 4:30.
