interesting but not much to see

Not making coins when I was there. Production line was small so disappointed there were not more and better displays. Good store for purchasing coin sets.

This was an incredible( free!!)experience. My family and I learned so much. The tour guides were interesting and fun. By the way many government institutions are not profitable, this one MAKES a profit even though it costs more to produce pennies and nickels and dimes....

Wonderful and Educational. No cameras allowed. Self guided tour of how money goes from paper to US currency. Tour takes about 35 minutes. Movie takes about 15 minutes. Lots of walking. Younger kids may get bored after about 25 minutes. Teens and adults will stay engaged. Watching millions of dollars right in front of you is exciting.

I really enjoyed this tour and our tour guide, very knowledeable. You have to make reservations on line, it is free. Don't bring any thing but you ID and some money for the gift shop with you. My husband even enjoyed it, he really didn't want to go.

I never expected to be paid for our visit, but we were all given a penny for our thoughts! The guide who brought us through always answered all of the question we had in our group and was certified on many of the machines on the production floor. Please note you have to do your homework and reserve a tour... More

The tour takes about 45 minutes and you will hear the history of the mint. Also, you will hear about a gold theft that took place. Our guide was excellent with children as well and kept us all entertained. The tour is free and they even give you a penny blank and a real penny. Don't plan on taking anything... More

Taking a tour of the mint is very interesting and you get to see some interesting coins. Their gift shop is also a great place to buy coins and different mint items.

Once scheduled and screened, my adult daughter and I enjoyed this tour. We learned the history of the mint,coins,cool facts about historical characters. We saw coin being imprinted and packaged. We were treated to a sample blank and newly minted penny. We saw some gold bars and we shopped for gifts. Worth the time to schedule a tour if you... More
