While visiting Washington DC. we visited alot of interesting sites. My 10 year old son and I both agreed that this was the most interesting. Tickets are available Monday through Friday, but get there early. Ticket booth opens at 8:00am and stays open until all tickets are gone for the day. My experience is that they are gone for the day in about 1 hour. The ticket booth is on the front enterance side of the building. After getting you ticket you need to go the the other side of the building to go on your tour. Get there about 10 minutes before your tour begins. Once in side the lines will be well worth the wait. You learn about what money is made out of and the steps it takes to print the bills. You see each step as you go along. A very well trained tour guide speaks to you along the way. The tour ends at the gift shop where you will find many awesome gifts at reasonable prices. Great tour for people of all ages. Don't miss this awesome tour. B.E.P. is located next door to the Smithsonian Holocost Museum.
