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

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.

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

You must make a reservation well in advance and don't take a backpack. There is no person available at the Mint to give you any information so the reservation must be made on-line.

This place was awesome! There was a lot of information throughout the tour and our tour guide Tom was really funny. He had a great sense of humor and great energy. The mint wasn't producing any coins when we toured because of electrical issues which was kinda disappointing but that wasn't the tour guides fault. Great experience!
