Denver,Colorado an interesting place. If you like American and Local history;the United States Denver Mint is interesting,and rewarding. This will also appeal to people who are Coin Collecters. Attended the United States Denver Mint in 2001.

Minting coins is an interesting process. The guide is full of all trivia to do with coins. Exhibits depict the evolution of monetary systems throughout history. Luckily pennies were being made that day. Security takes time. Most tickets available same day. Groups had reservations.

The tour of the Denver Mint is a great way to understand what it takes to make money and what lengths the government goes to to keep it safe. The process is amazing. I also enjoyed the story of the robbery of the mint. It's a great story!

We learned so much about coin money, its place in the economy and just how much work it takes to produce the final product. It is quite the operation and a great display of older coins

Visited with my 9 year old son. He liked that they give you a couple of free coins with your tour. Tours are free but only happen a couple of times per day. You are not allowed to bring a purse or camera, must turn your phone off and have to go through metal detectors. Educational tour. Guides were happy... More

Good tour, although it's less than an hour (the Philadelphia Mint was much more extensive). Tickets are limited and same day only. Must pick them up in person, no reservations. On street parking is available within 1-3 blocks on a weekday.

We love to have gone on the free tour, but we had a small backpack and a small computer bag -- and there are no lockers. Since we'd used Car2Go, we had no place to leave our bags so all we got to see was the gift shop.
