A valid, government-issued photo ID or passport is required for all visitors 18 and older. Passports are required for all international guests 18 and older.
Very interesting self-guided tour. Coins from early U.S. time (George Washington) to the present; bills from pre-Civil War era, some interactive exhibits that are more-or-less interesting. The most interesting for us was watching the money counting and binding, then seeing the robotic forklifts take the containers of dough into the vault. Enjoyable. (Make sure every visitor of driving age has their drivers license with them, as the guards will ask to see it upon admission.)
Enjoyed this stop. Only took about 30-40 minutes to look around. The coin collection was very interesting and qyite a few hands on activities for the kiddos. I would recommend the stop.
