About
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.

Enjoyed the entire exhibit. They went step by step and gave visuals, touchy-feely interaction and we got to actually view them in the process of “making” money! Loved the gift shop - small but enough. The tour is self-guided and has a short video at...More

No tickets, but when you go up you get in line and the adults show their photo id's and then the guard lets you in. Then you go through a metal detector and have to put all your belongings on a conveyor belt to be scanned.
