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.

The Mint was a great way to spend a few hours out of the heat of a Philly summer day. It is well located near Independence Hall and the other tourist stuff. My kids loved it. Lots of fun.

This is an absolutely must see, it makes you appreciate you coins. There's a roll of metal that's used to make coins, and its HUGE.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the mint. Seeing the history of our money was very interesting. The walk through the mint was easy and there were interesting items to see and read about all along the way.

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.
