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

After reading about the problems with the reservation system I've been checking for weeks to see if I could find an opening to no avail. Finally my date was coming up so i attempted at the magic 12:01 AM mark. Actually I tried starting at about 11pm through 11;45 pm and then continuously from 11;50 to 12;10. i never saw... More

I have been trying to make a reservation for the last two weeks and the only response I get is "Tour is Full". No matter what time of the day I try, I get the same response on the reservation website "Sorry for the inconvenience, but all tours are full." How can they all be full when you are only... More

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
