  • Love seeing how they make the coins. It is a self guided tour, so you can read the information at your own pace.  more »
  • It is different from what is usually done when you do tourism. You can see the process of manufacturing coins and commemorative medals. There were just tourists. It seemed a curious visit but if you visit the city you would never and would invest the time in other things.

  • The Mint was a great way to spend a few hours out of the heat of a Philly summer day. It is well located near Independence Hall and the other tourist stuff. My kids loved it. Lots of fun.  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.
