As close to the proverbial money-tree as you'll get. The U.S. Mint turns out 1.5 million coins per hour, and you can see how they do it.

This was an unplanned fun tour on our trip. The Mint sits just east of Independence National Historical Park. Enter on the west side of the building. Plan on about 45-1 hour on a self guided tour. Not a ton to say here; it's one of our working Mints and you get to learn the history behind US currency and... More

Lots of details about how coins are made. Some kids/adults will love it and read everything. About half way down the very long hall way, I was good to go. Gift shop was nice and I actually purchased a few items. Bring your id, otherwise they won't let you in.

We stopped here on a whim because we'd parked at a nearby garage with plans to go sightseeing in the historic district. This place offers a great (free!) self-guided tour in which you can walk around and read up on how the US Mint makes currency. You also get to see inside the plant itself (for this reason, no photos... More

Not terribly kid friendly but well-done and informative. Must have photo ID but it is free and worth stopping at. It's close to independence park and convenient. Only a small section was running but it was fascinating to watch. The gift shop is fun.

This was my second attempt to see the Mint- but truly it is not really a tourist attraction, it is a working factory, so go during the work week. X-ray and metal detectors, bring your photo ID! Go up, up- the viewing area is above the display rooms. Pretty cool, practically all automated, a few people wandering here and there.... More

We were not disappointed by this visit. My teenaged sons enjoyed it. Great views of the whole process of minting coins. This is a must if you have kids.

We'd been to Philly before, so we decided to visit in some attractions not related to the nation's founding. I enthusiastically recommend this place. It's described well by other reviewers here. You can spend as little or as much time as you want (we spent more time than we thought we would). It's very cool to learn about all the... More

An informative and partially interactive way of seeing where and how many of the coins in our pockets are made. The tour is all self-guided, and go at your own pace. My son absolutely loved going here!

Not sure I'd have been interested enough to stay longer but given it's free entry you can simply go in and look at the machines which is a pretty amazing sight. See the flat metal being fed in at one end and nickels and dimes come out at the other! Certainly makes you think about the weird notion that is... More
