Other Notable Buildings, Washington D.C.: 30 reviews and 61 photos
The Main Treasury Building is the third oldest building (after the Capitol and the White House) in downtown Washington (neighbourhood Georgetown is older), and dates from 1836. The rectanfular, large facility is built in impressive Greek Revival style with countless number of Doric columns put along its longer walls. I knew that there were some pretty, old interiors and decorative art to see there but unfortunately all tours of the Main Treasury building (1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW) have been suspended until further notice.
Keep in mind that this is NOT the tour for seeing the production of United States currency notes. If you are a dedicated fan of US dollars in large quantities (who isn't?) go to see US currency production:
- the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Washington, DC (switch to my Factory of my needs :-) general tip)
- Bureau of Engraving and Printing's Western Currency Facility in Fort Worth, Texas
- the United States Mint in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
- the United States Mint in Denver, Colorado
Unfortunately, for security reasons, there no tours at the Fort Knox Bullion Depository in Kentucky.
