The mint tour is fun, informative and quick. However, check the schedule on its website to find availability. Chance to buy mint sets at the end of the tour in the store.

We showed up and the security guard told us we needed a reservation to go through the mint. He also said the reservations were out three months in advance. Big disappointment. I thought since it was a free tour we would get to go in. The gift shop is open to the public.

This may not be fair for me to review because we didn't actually get to tour the US Mint. My husband tried to make a reservation online for over a month. He was unsuccessful. Once we got to Denver, we decided to at least see the U.S. Mint building and discovered the gift shop. We looked around in there for... More

The tour guide was fantastic. He was interesting and made a rather boring tour, much more exciting. My 7 and 9 year found the first 10-15 minutes interesting but, then totally lost interest. You do not get to see much of the building nor did we get to see any coins being struck. The tour guide did have some very... More

I thought the tour was great. The tour guide was fantastic He was very interesting and entertaining at the same time. I was very lucky that I was part of a large group and they took our group because it was big. It is difficult to get a tour if you are alone. I checked on it in April for... More

First of all let me say that this tour was really well done and enjoyable. I would recommend it for visitors and locals alike. We really liked the tour and our guide. And it is FREE! :) However, you will need to book your tour about 2 months in advance. Be prepared to stalk the website. Dates come open at... More

We found the tour very interesting and enjoyable. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The tour takes about 45 minutes. You do need reservations. They will not let you in without them. The reservations book up quickly, but keep checking back to see if there are openings. I originally tried to get reservations two months ago but they were... More

Plan ahead and make a reservation... family friendly tour that gives just the right amount of history and facts about the coins produced here. Takes about an hour.

A reservation is required and tour times fill up quickly. We had our reservation for July 3rd which ends up being a federal holiday, so no money in production :( However the tour was still great and very informative. Very neat facility with lots of history and displays. Would highly recommend

Before going I honestly had no idea what to expect from a tour of the US mint. Following the entry procedures was a bit tedious, yet totally understandable. Our tour guide could not have been more accommodating. The history of the mint and the ability for the group to see how coins are made, checked, and bundled was informative and... More
