Make your reservations well in advance if you go during a busy season. We were there in February and were lucky enough to have a choice of times on the same day. In summer, they are literally mobbed. Security is tighter than any airport. You can't carry anything in except for a wallet and keys. You can take your cell... More

The attraction we wanted to see was closed that day, so we went on Monday , (on line) and made a reservation to take a 2:00 tour. you have to be there at least half hour early, so you can go through security. you cant bring in purses or backpacks....

Very well organized. Our guide was professional, able to answer all questions. Very interesting. The entry procedure was rigorous, be sure to read instructions you receive with ticket confirmation. Also note there is no specic parking lot available. Allow time to find parking.

See how US coins are made. No paper money but plenty of change. They even give a fresh penny as a souvenir!

You get to see how our coins are made, hear about the history of the mint, see the guns used to protect it in the past, and watch the worker bees sometimes. Call ahead for reservations and don't be late for your tour. Don't take your popgun, or any gun. No outside weapons allowed.

My son and I liked this visit. It can be tedious for little kids because they cannot read the many descriptions but it is very informative. And the gift shop is so much fun. You can feed bills in and get the collectible coins. There is a lot of history and watching them make the coins is cool. Just make... More

Informative tour guides provide so many interesting facts for visitors of all ages. For a fun, entertaining, and educational experience, this is the place to take the family or parents. Just the possibility of seeing U.S. coins made is an awesome experience and one kids won't forget. I visited as a grammar school kid with my parents and it was... More

Nice tour, about 45 minutes long. They only allow about 25 or so people at 3 times per day, by reservation only. Go to their website & reserve up to 30 days prior to visit. You have to go thru "TSA airport" type security screening at entrance, but it is a secure facility. You see a short film, various stages... More

This is a fairly short tour - about an hour - but it was surprisingly good! While you wait for the tour to start, there is a small area with museum displays to browse. The tour guide was very informative and had an entertaining delivery style. The kids (ages 6 & 10) also really enjoyed it and retained a lot... More
