United States Mint Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful, and Historical. From the coin collection observed on tour to the building itself. Plan ahead, as to not be disappointed. Tickets are available for all tour times starting at 7 am. Everyone in line at 7 was getting tickets for tours scheduled throughout the day.
We had a wonderful visit and highly recommend the tour! The tour guide was funny and informative and you get a souvenir item of two new pennies, one of which that has not been stamped. We went in June and got in line for tour tickets at 6 am and had no problems getting them. There is a limit on getting the tickets, 5 per person, and about 50 people go each tour. Make sure you read the restrictions before you go and enjoy!!
This is a review of the Mint Tour, not the gift shop. We visited on a Friday and arrived at 6:00a. There was a fairly long line ahead of us, but we had our pick of any time slot except 11:00a (it was already full). We chose 9:30a. You must have one person present for every 5 tickets you need. No kids under 7 years old are allowed. The tour itself did a good job of talking about the Mint's history, but to learn what each machine did, we had to ask a tour guide. Bottom line: everyone definitely enjoyed the tour and were glad they did it.
Awesome tour. Learned so much. Brought our 7 and 10 yr old and they even enjoyed it.
The worst experience. We raced over to get to the Mint more than 30 minutes in advance of a tour, only discover they were completely full for the day for school tours. Told to come back tomorrow, but we fly out tonight... salt to the wound: we paid $14 for parking. You cant get tickets online and they dont keep their site up to date in real time. My suggestion would be to not even add the mint to your itinerary when visiting Denver.
