I stopped in to the Mint on a free morning just for fun. I am interested in how our money is made and maintained, and if you are too, you will not be disappointed. The tour is self-paced and took me a little more than an hour to see everything. The first half of the tour displays American coins from different time periods and shows how money was transported throughout the nation. I was impressed with the display about gold bars and other currency being transported to safe storage in Fort Knox! The second half of the tour was equally interesting - guests are able to observe the actual mint operations in progress from a deck above the factory. It was very cool to see thousands of coins (pennies were being made on the day I visited) being moved between different machines. I would recommend touring the mint to visitors of ages 5 and up.
