Okay I needed to write this because people need to know. I lived in VA for 20 years and have been to DC about 30 times. The mint tour is only available Monday through Friday and not on holidays. Most tourists are there on the weekends. Us included. Every time we've gone has been on a weekend so we could... More

For this attraction we had to go to the ticket booth to get tickets, even though they are free. The earlier you go the better, however we went at around 10a and got tickets for 1pm. The tour was very informative. We were able to watch the money being made on the printers and everything. The kids thought it was... More

A beautiful huge national landmark. It's where the financial life of United States of America resides. Great architectural just right next to the white house. In front you will notice a bronze statue of Mr. Alexander Hamilton the first treasurer. A must see when in Washington.

Contact your congressman or senator in advance for a specially guided tour or join a routine tour, but each one is a fascinating look at how our currency is designed, printed and managed. Gift shop at the end where you can purchase special proof sets, among other souvenirs. Coin collectors delight.

What you see is so limited and with a large group it even harder to see when they make you stand in 2 rows. The way the tour is designed it is hard to hear what the tour guide was saying. Our tour guide used some sort of weird fake accent that made it even harder to understand. Her voice... More

Great architecture and huge in size. I initially thought this was the white house as they were quite close to each other.

I got a private tour from Dale at the Curator's office. I cannot say enough about Dale. He was interesting, knew his building and has been here through several administrations. If you go to Treasury, you have to get clearance ahead of time. They run your social and do a background check. If you have outstanding warrants: word of advice,... More

We were very interested in checking out this treasury tour. One thing that is important to know about tickets is to line up EARLY. The ticket booth is not located on the same side of the building as the entrance for the tour. Go to the opposite side of the block. Check out a map or the website to know... More
