Tips from the community
Incredible tour if you’re lucky enough to visit while it’s open and are able to score a ticket (pro tip: ask your representative in Congress a couple months in advance, and they can sometimes get you in,). The Bureau of Engraving and Printing is where U.S. paper currency is printed and visitors can take a tour to see the printing process in action. Your kids will be fascinated by the high-tech machines and may even learn a thing or two about the history of U.S. currency. You even purchase sheets of uncut bills from the gift shop.

Bureau of Engraving and Printing Lists
- chiefseeker (Jody Vandergriff) Planning a family trip to Washington D.C. with your kids? Look no further than this list of kid-friendly things to do in the city. I took my 10-year-old son to DC for a memorable trip in November 2019, and it was both a fun and educational experience for both of us. From incredible museums to the grandeur of the National Mall, there is no shortage of activities to keep children entertained and engaged in learning. Here are our favorite spots from our trip. Reach out to your representative in Congress up to 6 months in advance for free tickets to many of the top sights as well as special access. Book as many popular sites sell out quickly!
