This free activity is great if you are interest in coins and how they are made. It is worth a visit if you have time. However, I would visit Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell first you have limited tie.

This is where coins are made and from the pennies that I saw, we will be using them for a while. It offers a self guided tour that takes a half hour or more if you read all the signs. You need to go through...More

I have been to all of the Mints and each one has its own charm. This mint allows you to see the largest share of its activities and it is 100% self-guided. This is nice compared to other mints (e.g. Denver mint) that do only...More

Great place to take the kids to see how coins are made. Doesn't take too long and it's free. I also particularly like the gift shop but my wife wouldn't let me buy any gold or silver proofs.

It was very informative and interactive for my students to go through. They enjoyed being able to see how coins were made and the history behind the coins.

Another great Museum in Philadelphia and this one is free. You see so much of what goes on in the coin making industry including a self guided step by step tour of how coins are made.

Great self guided tour that appealed to everyone in our group ages 10 to 71! We spent longer at the mint that we intended so allow over an hour and get there early before the line to enter gets too long.

An interesting view of coin making! (The paper money is not made here.) We enjoyed the well diagramed, self-guided tour through the mint. There were several families in attendance and the children seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is there a minting schedule available so that you can find out if coins will be being produced when you are visiting? Or, does anyone know if coins are minted on Saturdays? Or on Saturdays of holiday weekends?

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.
I can't tell from their website, are tickets required?

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.

No tickets required. If your schedule is flexible, keep an eye on their schedule as they do not operate the machinery 7 days a week. It's much more interesting if you go on a day they are working.
