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.

Security will scan you at the door. Be patient. First floor has a coin display and store. Second floor had a six-minute video on how the US started the monetary process as well as some historical displays. Third floor takes you through step by step...More

Self guided tour was great. My son who is 12 doesn't normally like "museums" but this held his interest and really enjoyed it

Self-guided tours are the best - you can go at your own pace, linger over what you find fascinating, move on if you're not so into it. Great little gift shop too.

We went on the weekend and it was interesting. It would have been much better if we went when the money was being made because the majority of the visit is a "factory" tour.

This self-guided tour really walks you through the process of making coins, then allows you to see the working mint floor. Great for kids.

I've been on this tour twice and enjoyed it both times. It's well worth the money, cuz it's free! A really interesting tour with a great view of the manufacturing floor. I brought my daughter and nephews on the tour and they loved it.

It's self guided so you go as fast or as slow as you like. I think we were in and out of there in 15 minutes.

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.
