As a Houston resident, I've been lucky enough to attend several functions at this building - luncheons, lectures, etc. I know they give general tours, but be prepared - they are strict with security - be prepared for the "inspection" process, but it's worth it. The building is beautiful, you'll probably walk out with a tube of shredded money, and here's a "fun fact" they won't want to tell you: the building was originally named the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank until our city protested and had the name changed on the marquee! Thank goodness!!

Free but must be arranged in advance. I visited with a group as part of a corporate meeting. They have a visitor's area on the first floor where they have many interesting facts and you are also able to see the employees handling the currency. Make sure you pick up a free sample of Unfit Currency as a souvenir before you leave.

Very interesting. I was at the reserve building for a meeting and took time to walk through the exhibits. I do plan on trying to do a tour. There is parking off of Taft street. Best part is that it is free.

This tour was a complete surprise. I watched as this building was being built in early 2000 and onwards. The materials used and the time it took were extrordinary. I moved away just as it was completed, and didn't give it another thought until invited on a tour of the facility with a local community group when I returned.
The facility is massive. It sits on Allen parkway in Houston, near the main downtown area, but in an area that affords more security options than the original building, which sat on the street in downtown Houston exposed to foot traffic and public access without a perimeter.
The building that stands now is a structure built to withstand weather, terror, or other disaster related events. It has systems in place which allow it to function regardless of outside interruptions or outages.
The structure is impressive and contains a firing range (they have 80 police agents for protection) with a water cooled system to remove target and bullet residue. It contains a vault where the money from all the south texas banks is funnelled, counted and recounted stored, and stacked. Almost all of this is automated, although there are some workers directing the enormous sums of cash being moved from place to place. There is also a large conference area which overlooks Allen Parkway and the downtown area which affords the Reserve to hold important conferences and economic summits. It has layers of vestibules and small rooms which need to be passed through in other to access each area. This is for security purposes, and acts as a deterrent to any possible breaches.
This tour was given by one of the senior bank personell which made it very informative and he gave us great insights into the Fed and it's purpose as well as a bit of the economic picture. There is a historical review in the public reception area before groups are permitted to enter the inner building spaces.
This was well worth the time. They have a website with contact details to make arrangements for a tour. School groups are welcome and it is free. The public can park on Taft to the West side of the building, and the public entrance is on Allen Parkway.
There is no gold kept at this facility, however, so a trip to New York will have to be next on the list!

My organization took a group tour. It was pre-arranged through the website: https://www.dallasfed.org/microsites/houston/tours_hou.cfm . We got to see the building as well as learn about the Federal Reserve in general and the Houston Branch in particular. It was very informative and included a peek at how money is counted and bundled. You even get a sample of $100 (although it is shredded). There is a very interesting short film that explains how the system works that was included in the tour. There is also a gift shop on the premises. It's a great outing for a small group (15 - 20 people). The parking lot (included the handicapped spots) is pretty far away from the entrance, so if you have anyone handicapped or not capable of taking a long walk, you might want to drop them off at the entrance (facing Allen Parkway), and then park.
