We found this tour to be fantastic. It's quite neat to see how money is printed, as well as the history behind it. You can get tickets from your member of Congress or by waiting in line starting at 8 AM.

We just stopped by and decided to take the tour and we were glad we did. It was really neat watching them make the money and interesting to know that most of the US money is made in Texas!

We pre-booked through our state senator's office. I would recommend booking ahead of time for any tour in D.C. Check the website.

It's mostly a guided tour for about 25 minutes so one hour should be enough. There are a few displays in the ending area.
