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.

Nice tour. I think it was free. Don't remember paying to enter. Interesting history of the famous Denver Mint

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.

Great tour but a bit confusing trying to figure out how to get reservations. The website says reservations are required and must be made online. There is no place on the website to make a reservation. I called and was told to just come by. I didn't ask what time the tours started and wasn't told. I got there at... More

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.

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.
