As close to the proverbial money-tree as you'll get. The U.S. Mint turns out 1.5 million coins per hour, and you can see how they do it.

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 also stop and digest the...More

The originator of this listing grossly underestimated the time to see all at this place. The listing indicates <1hr, but we found the first and second floor themselves could take that long if you watch the film and actually read the information. Upstairs in the...More

Time well spent at the US Mint! We loved the tour and the fact that it was for free! You can see all of it within about 1,5hr if it’s not very crowded. You also get to observe the process real time! A good experience...More

Don't forget the less crowded and wonderful free visit to this remarkable place! This is a worthwhile place to visit. I only had an hour and a half but could have easily spent twice that to visit.

We stopped here before heading over the the constitution center. Security screening was quick. The tour is self guided. My kids really loved seeing the machines in action. It was a great learning experience for all of us. Stroller friendly too!

I knew this fact but somehow it was still disappointing. Love that it’s free. It’s still cool to see on Saturday but not seeing any machines running was a bummer. We went here 16 years ago on a weekday and so we remembered it as...More

We walked in an hour before close and enjoyed watching the process from beginning to end. The staff were friendly, especially the girl in the gift shop who helped us pick out a souvenir for our young daughter. There is no photography inside the building.

Great place to visit and learn about how coinage is made. After passing through security, you go to the third floor to look down over the factory floor. All along the passage are a series of educational and interactive exhibits helping explain what's going on...More

You can enjoy a free tour of the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia, and it's pretty interesting. It's all self-guided and self-paced. The displays show you the different steps in the process of how coins are made. All the while, they have windows all along the...More

Hayley, it depends on how fascinated or interested you are in the minting process. It is a self guided tour so you set your own pace. It will depend on others in your party, especially small children will not be amused. A... More

They work around the clock. However, whether there is a lot of people working on the production floor or not will not impact the value of your visit.

No tickets, but when you go up you get in line and the adults show their photo id's and then the guard lets you in. Then you go through a metal detector and have to put all your belongings on a conveyor belt to be scanned.
