Be sure to book your time to visit online, and arrive at the indicated 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time. Parking nearby is about $9 for all day. You cannot take anything with you, be sure and read the rules they are very strict. We took a two year old and with zero entertainment and no stroller it was... More

You have to book your tour on line in advance and after three years of trying we finally were able to get a reservation. While you wait to be let in for the tour you are outside so if the weather is wet or cold dress properly. They do screen you like at the airport and purses/bags are not allowed... More

What a gem to have in the middle of a city. Not to be missed, you will reservations to take their free 45-minute tour. (make reservations online) Great insight as to how our coins are made and the guides are absolutely wonderful. Aside from Fort Knox, this place has the most gold stored than anywhere else.

One of the few buildings around the country. Be sure to also visit the Civic Park and tour the State Capital, the City and County Building, The Denver Art Museum, The Denver Library, and more

The actual bldg looks secure and very official. Empty your pockets before entering and shut off cameras as no pictures... More

Contrary to what the other reviewers indicate about not bringing children, my tour had several five-year-olds on it and they all enjoyed the experience. The tour is 45 minutes long, free, and it's a one-way guided tour. If you're lucky, they'll be running the machines and you can see them actively minting pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollar coins. (Half-dollars... More

Tried to get reservations but was booked out when we tried to plan ahead. Drive there anyways and got last minute reservation. Worth the frustration. Bring nothing with you makes it easier for security. Was very neat to see, short tour.

The tour is very interesting but once you start there is no turning back. So if you have young children that will not appreciate our new patient for the 45 minute tour you may want to skip. Overall worth the time.

The little museum was interesting. And seeing $30 Million in cash behind glass was pretty cool. It only takes about an hour to go through the museum. At the end they even give you a free bag of shredded money.
