  • We were kind of looking for a factory we could tour not far from New York City, and this unexpectedly turned out to be one, a very interesting one at that. I would allow 1.5-2 hours, if you want to al...  more »

  • Tour guides would've made this great but a self guided tour just doesn't scratch the surface of the history and process. The very least they could do is create an audio tour. Glad it was free. Happy I did it but if you're pressed for time and it's this or something else. Do the something else.
  • Free and totally worth it. It was fun for the kids and for us to see how coins are made and to see the demonstrations. Very interesting and informative.
  • I like the self-guided tour. Keeps it flowing and lets you go at your own pace. Only complaint is that I wish the gift shop had sets of mint-specific coins instead of Denver and Philly mixed sets.
  • A fun look at how coins are made and I'm sure it would be a real joy with the right tour guide but ours kept going on her speech, giving dirty looks at anyone who spoke at all, rushing people away from looking at anything too long and even requested people not laugh when a staffer down below held up a cute silly sign that said he loved his job. They also don't allow any drinks but have a vending machine right outside the tour. I would go somewhere else for a more fun experience but if you don't like soda and only care about a fast paced explanation of coins be my guest.
  • we visited last week and it was very nicely done. very interactive and you can take as much time as you like. lots of information and history around it. much better than the currency printing in DC where we were rushed by a guide.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
