If you have never been it is free but you can not take pictures inside. Great activity for all especially kids as they can watch the actual process of making coins.

If you have time, this was neat to see. I was amazed at the size of the place! There is lots of reading, but very interesting. I am glad we went. We weren't able to see production, so be sure to go when it is...More

My 2nd trip to the mint within 4 years, it's fascinating but you must be sure it is in operation when you go. This year we went on a Saturday and it was a bit boring since nothing was happening.

definitely worth the visit! Avoid going on Sundays even though it's open.... production isn't happening and that's one of the coolest things to see

We really liked going here, but it would have been nice to know that the mint wasn't making coins for two weeks! We learned alot! Highly recommend this place

Actually walked by on the way to the terminal market, decided to stop in. It's free! It's air conditioned. You could spend a few hours in there. We walked through and it was interesting. Give it a try.

I knew the mint had remodeled their tour just a couple of years ago but it still was a bit lackluster to me. While there is a great deal of information there is not much to link it to what you can see on the...More

We went here because I collect coins and it was a short walk from the liberty bell. It was interesting to see how the coins were made. This is a walking tour and it also involves an escalator. When you take the tour you can...More

Is there a minting schedule available so that you can find out if coins will be being produced when you are visiting? Or, does anyone know if coins are minted on Saturdays? Or on Saturdays of holiday weekends?

They work around the clock. However, whether there is a lot of people working on the production floor or not will not impact the value of your visit.

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.

No tickets required. If your schedule is flexible, keep an eye on their schedule as they do not operate the machinery 7 days a week. It's much more interesting if you go on a day they are working.
