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.

Easy to understand, self paced tour thru the US Mint. Excellent explanations as we viewed the working Mint from an enclosed walkway above the floor. Great photos of the workers in all phases of making the Mint operate efficiently. No samples!!!!

We visited here expecting much more than we got - the inside is more like a factory - don't go expecting much and you will be fine.

Ok in all honesty I wasn't expecting to like this but my husband wanted to go. Its a bit dark and dingy initially but you get up to the third floor and there is a fascinatingly well done and very interactive presentation. You walk along a hallway and learn each step of the coin making process which was actually quite... More

A fun side trip. Here they make the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters and send them to the treasury. It's a good self guided tour with a lot of information on how they manufacture the coins.

We took advantage of this free tour for our family on a recent trip. Please note that adults over the age of 18 are required to have photo ID with them and no photography is allowed inside the building. There is a small history portion of the display with a nice, short video giving the history of the mint. The... More

Tour at your own pace. Very interesting to watch the actual coin production. A bit warm inside, dress lite.

My children actually wanted to fo this attraction. Learn about the process of minting money. Also trivia about our American Monetary System. Convenient to public transportation and hotels. Look to spend at least two hours but still plenty of day to see something else.

Went with my daughter. The tour is self guided and took about an hour to complete. Great way to see the history behind our monetary system and how it has developed to the system we use today. Highlight of the tour was being able to walk above and see down onto the factory floor to see the actual process of... More
