You have to have a reservation months in advance for a tour. When we went it was closed for some kind of renovation. Was able to go to the gift shop but their supplies were very limited and under staffed. The parking is horrible so make sure to bring a lot of quarters, 4 per hour, for the meters and... More

Wish there could have been more but it was still nice to see some of the paper money on display. Worth a very quick visit while in the neighborhood.

We tried for months and weeks to schedule a tour at the Mint but couldn't get a time. The only way to schedule a tour is on line so do not expect to see the inside by just showing up. However there is a gift shop that you buy all sorts of coin/mint related items.

I thought this tour was going to be the highlight of a 2 week road trip vacation. I had to pull a string or two to get this tour, so maybe my expectations were a little high. I wasn't expecting them to give me any trade secrets on how coins are made, but I also wasn't expecting the tour to... More

Watching the money making process is very interesting. We went with the scout troop and really enjoyed seeing how coins are made. The gift shop had some great items too!

I went with my father to tour the mint in August 2015. The secret we used to getting a reservation was only booking one at a time and we were able to get reservations for the two of us. Also do NOT bring your purse or backpacks, etc. You will not be allowed in with them. The tour was interesting... More

Yes, I had to calculate 30 days out before the day we planned to be there and wait up until midnight Eastern time to book reservations on the website, but it was worth it. The tour guides were fantastic and the history of the mint and how coins are made was fascinating. They even gave you a freshly stamped coin... More

I can't complain when I can bring my family on a tour during vacation that doesn't cost anything. Cool stuff to see, the tour guide explains a few things but we didn't go in depth about much. We didn't know about no bags and the officer was kind of a jerk telling us about bringing it back to the car,... More

Unfortunately, my experience with the U.S. Mint was very much ruined by the horrible start to the experience. Though I had made my reservations well in advance and was ready for the tour, Officer Moody at the entrance was the rudest person I encountered during my whole trip to the state. I understand that bags aren't allowed on the tour,... More
