Bureau of Engraving & Printing – DC

Bureau of Engraving & Printing

Welcome to Washington D.C's Bureau of Engraving & Printing, or BEP for short.

Located in the heart of our nation's capital, this tour and visitor center teaches guests all about United States paper currency. There is only one other BEP location, and that is in Fort Worth, Texas.

During your visit, you will be able to walk along the gallery overlooking the production room and see millions of dollars being printed. View historical exhibits teaching you about the importance of the BEP, and view an informational film about its history and function. The exhibits will dive further into currency production, and you can see them all during a group tour. Group tours run every 15 minutes between 11 am and 1 pm and end in the gift shop where you can buy various currency products.

This attraction is closed weekends and federal holidays.
