  • Although there is limited viewing of coin making, it is the US Mint and what an opportunity for families to enjoy together. The display are wonderful if you take the time look and observe.  more »
  • Was unable to go as was closed all week. Seems to have extremely limited hours and tours. Frustrating as seemed like an interesting thing to do.  more »
  • I would rate the tour a 5/5, but I took off one star for the ticket distribution process. They no longer accept reservations, so you MUST be there by about 6:15-6:30 to even have a chance to get ticke...  more »

  • An incredible experience for American History. We were visiting from out of town and read about how it's a must see place. Tours are first come first serve. We arrived for the 930AM tour. It was fascinating, insightful, and educational. Also had to buy a few things in gift shop. A definite must see place. No photos allowed.
  • Incredible experience! In order to get your tickets to go on a tour around the mint you need to be at the ticket office at about 7 a.m. The tour get sold out very quickly!
  • You can not make a reservation as some are describing. It is first come first serve and the ticket window opens at 7am. They offer different times of the morning and afternoon and tours take 45min not counting the 30 min to be at the fence prior to the tour for the security check. The tour itself is mediocre at best. You can't really see much of the coins or how they are made, only some conveyor belts with little bins moving money. The displays are cool but don't expect to really read about them since the tour moves along quickly and armed guards are with the tour. All in all its historical and the architecture is gothic renaissance. Also, believe it or not,they pay you to take the tour, you get a free penny as a souvenir!!!!
  • Very similar facility to Philadelphia Mint. However, they store gold here, which means you are restricted to a guided tour. Ticket window opens early, and you can get a free ticket to a tour throughout the day. No pictures in the facility. DONT PAY FOR PARKING UNTIL YOU GET THE TICKET. The DOJ parking lot is a good spot, as it has a variety of times, and if you are staying under 2 hours, it is probably the cheapest parking in the area. Easy walk to State and County Capitol Buildings
  • I really like to go to the Denver Mint because I like the the way our money is made and It's a fun place place to tour by yourself or with friend's and family. I will keep coming back to tour there as often as I can. The gift shop is a cute shop to go into as well. The tour guide is very warm and kind and shows us as great time while we are doing our tour. The Denver Mint is also a great for out of towner's to see as well. Thank You Denver Mint for letting us tour you!!! 😀😂
