  • First of all to book you have to be very quick, exactly 30 days before, and exactly in the opening time, as there are only 25 seats made available. The visit is interesting and uncommon , you must of course pass all the checks, show the reservation and passport (a special attention the names inserted in the presentation must coincide with those reported on the document ). The visit is free and is only in English. Visiting the largest golden reserve in the United States, it does have some effect, obviously the most interesting part is the visit to the vault, where entering the elevator, we descend to an undefined floor, but when you open the doors you see mountains of gold bars, duly closed by grates. Small cadeaux before leaving a sachet containing confetti of old banknotes.

  • Take the guided tour. You have to reserve in advance on their site. The highlight is the largest gold vault in the world - bigger than Fort Knox.  more »

  • Both amazing from the outside and the inside. From the outside this was built like a medieval fortress, not surprisingly as there is a lot gold inside. So its architecture is striking as it is surrounded by modern buildings. But you can also take a tour to visit the inside. And you can see some of the gold reserves within the vaults, amazing!
  • Nice place The architectural part of the building it's amazing that historical part of it overwhelming great place. They show you how they destroy money and the gold is just a beautiful pictorial be had. No pictures also a great a memory to have. Wheres my gold hahahahahahahahaha
