  • If you have never been to the US mint, it is a must see experience. You will experience the process of manufacturing coins and metals.

  • Something like a tour of a US Mint appeals to the part of me that really enjoys to learn. The mint has a neat little section set off to the side with some historical artifacts from the old mints and some information about the origins of the US Mint and the first minted coins. There is also a video that describes a bit of the history of the mint. They also have a small display with examples of rare coinage from United States history. These coins did not mean much to me specifically, but I knew that I was looking at something special and valuable. Upstairs, they have a walkway that goes over the floor of the facility where they actually still mint coins on a daily basis. There are a lot of interactive displays that explain the process of coinage and describe each machine that can be viewed below. My only disappointment was that, on a Saturday, I was not able to actually witness the machines in operation.
  • If this floats your boat then you will really enjoy this. It's a shame you cannot take pics. Maybe they should have an area where you can! Even if it's just a set up of something. They are keeping costs down but a guide working the viewing area could add much more and ask some interesting questions. If your not into art. Give this a go.
  • I really enjoyed this tour. Witnessing how metal sheet is turned into coins we use every day is fascinating. The best part is that the tour is self guided so I could take as long as I wanted watching the process.
  • Self guided tour, with a few nice historic displays. Good explanation of the process on the walls with accompanying videos. Kids moved through relatively quickly, only stopping at the interactive experiences. The most boring part was the viewing of the actual minting process.
  • I'd better give them a good review, they make my money. ;) Seriously, the tours are great, very informative, the Mint is clean, the staff is great, and you will not be disappointed.
