The Mint is free to visit. I found the staff to be some of the friendlier staff among all the attractions. The lobby has some lovely Tiffany mosaics depicting the money making process. The tour itself is a little boring. You take an escalator up two stories. The first half is self-guided and has boards describing the coin-making process. We zipped through this; I just wasn’t interested in reading, reading, reading. The return trip down the hall is an observation deck showing the coin machinery. We went on a Friday and no one was working. So, again, it is just mildly interesting looking at idle machinery. The gift shop is nice. This attraction provides a one hour respite from rain or heat, but it is more of an “if you have extra time” attraction than a “must see” attraction.
