  • A very interesting, free self-guided tour. It was fascinating watching the coins being minted in person. There are placards and videos that explain the minting processes you see taking place on the factory floor below you.
  • A great place to spend time and learn. Kids enjoy it. It's a self guided tour and free of cost. Must visit at least once.
  • Nice free tour, decent gift shop. Located with other great attractions. I recommend.
  • Interesting tour. I have visited the mint multiple times. Check out the cemetery next door. Ben Franklin's family is buried there as are many famous early Americans.
  • Excellent self guided tour. Lots of information. No pictures allowed. Had an issue with a stuffed animal we bought and they were very willing to take care of the issue.

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.
