We had a very knowledgeable tour guide and she was pleasant. They were mostly minting pennies when we were there. Be sure you get your reservation on the internet 30 days ahead of time. If you do not have a reservation, get in a separate line outside. They let 4 folks in without a reservation the day we toured. Be... More

The tour was good, but crazy to get tickets. Luckily, I was given a heads up from a friend about getting tickets. We were only in Denver one day,so I had to get online at midnight 30 days prior to get 4 tickets. They were gone immediately after I got them. It was very educational. We didn't get a free... More

If you want to go on the U.S. Mint tour, be at your computer at the exact minute that tickets open for your selected day. It's the only way to get tickets -- which are free. That being said, this is an amazing part of US history that shouldn't be missed. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgable and knew the... More

As others have commented on their reviews, it's practically impossible to get a reservation for the Denver Mint and that's why I'm giving this one star. This is the ONE place I wanted to visit on our 2 days in Denver. I even rearranged our schedule to be in Denver on Monday to Thursday when the Mint is open. As... More

Pros: 1. Entertains tour guide. 2. Learned a lot of information. 3. Great displays and artifacts to look at. 4. Interesting scenery-I think it is really neat to see the mass production in progress. Cons: 1. Tough to get tour-It took me a number of attempts online to secure them. 2. No cameras-I understand why for the areas of production,... More

We recently planned a trip to Denver. On the suggestion of a friend, we started researching the mint tour. It appeared you could book about 30 days ahead of time but no further. At the 30 day mark I tried to book online but there was no vacancy. I found a phone number online and left a message and was... More

My husband recently attended an AAMI convention in Denver from Saturday through the following Monday. Preparing for his first trip to the city, I explored reviews of places and things to do in Denver. This proved to be a total waste of time as Denver's scheduling and open policy is definitely not conducive to convention travelers. He decided upon a... More

If you're looking for a way to spend a couple of hours, this is a worthwhile visit. The history is well presented and the "cool factor" is pretty high when you're watching dollar coins cranked out. Make sure that you make reservations. No cameras allowed, so leave them in your car. Follow the directions on the Mint website. People were... More

This is a short tour that takes you through the coin making process. It's best if you make a reservation because you might not get in if you are in the standby line. This was our second visit to the Mint. On the most recent visit, everyone in the standby line got in, but the first time we visited, only... More

The tour was alright. Because most everything is done on a machine, you can't see too much of the process. The guide did a nice job of explaining everything, giving some history on the mint, and answering everyone's questions. Overall, not something I'd do again but glad I did it.
