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 is a neat place to go. It is a self guided tour. There are elevators so it is accessible. There are bathrooms. I’m not sure why reviews say bring an ID, we weren’t asked for any. You can see the metal coils coins...More

My husband really wanted to see this place. I truly was not as excited as he was, but I changed my mind after we entered into the hallway where one can observe making coins. Very interesting and way more work then I thought was involved...More

Although no photos allowedvand you view everything through glass from overhead galleries, this building is a must. The explanations of the machinery below and the pathways the coins take from one part of the plant to another are very good and informative. Statistic on production...More

Not worth getting off the beaten path. Too much random walking, old exhibits, very little to see. It's really somehting which should be closed down.

Really great place and you can go at your own pace. Lots of interactive activities. Very interesting. We were lucky enough to be there when it was fairly empty so really enjoyed it!

There are only three places in the US you can see how coins are minted. This is an unique experience and highly recommended for everyone. Fascinating to see how much technology goes in behind minting coins. Visit early in the morning for best experience.

While visiting Philadelphia we stopped into the U.S. Mint. It was a Thursday afternoon and we got through their security screening pretty quick. It had been many years since I was last there, so it was fun to walk the long corridors and watch the...More

If you're nearby, highly recommend taking the tour of the Philadelphia U.S. Mint. It's free and well done. Great view from 2nd floor of mint operations. Reminder of security check point. Tour takes about 40 mins. Gift shop and restrooms at end.

Hayley, it depends on how fascinated or interested you are in the minting process. It is a self guided tour so you set your own pace. It will depend on others in your party, especially small children will not be amused. A... More

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.
