This is actually the 4th Mint in Philadelphia's History. Entrance is free. We enjoyed viewing the actual manufacturing process of coins. No photography is allowed. They also make various medals at this mint that are quite interesting to see. I would recommend a visit.
It's a self-guided tour of the world's largest mint. Their primary mission is minting everyday pennies, nickels dimes and quarters, but they also do gold and silver and military medals. Although you get to see much of the production area, you do NOT get to...More

The first level is security and the large gift shop...More

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 quick visit would be 15 minutes, if you stop, watch, read all the information and stop at the store, an hour easily.
