Western Currency Facility Tour and Vistor Center
If you’ve ever dreamed of making billions of dollars in mere minutes, visit “the money factory,” aka the Western Currency Facility Tour and Visitor Center (9000 Blue Mound Rd., 817/231-4000, www.moneyfactory.gov, Mon.–Fri. 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., free admission). An elevated walkway over the production floor allows visitors to preside over millions of freshly printed bills as part of a 45-minute tour including interactive exhibits and an informative theater film. Tours are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and be sure to allow 30 minutes for everyone to make it through the not-surprisingly heavy security.
