Great place and a lot of fun! Shows the whole process of how coins are made. Great for a family trip or a coin expert.

Last summer, I went on a family trip to the Philadelphia Mint. It was a wonderful experience. They show the process followed to make coins. It’s very interesting for children as well. Five Stars

We had a really nice time at the mint. My children really took a liking to "my world" after our visit.

I live just a short walk from the mint, it's amazing that it's open six days a week for free, you can go watch them make coins all day if you like. You can't beat free.

Great tour! Lots of information broken into easily read displays. I enjoyed the hands-on kids stuff. The binocular stand was extra fun. Alas, no photos allowed! (understandably)

Self guided tour. They don't allow photos inside. Unfortunately the machines weren't running on Monday July 3rd... but they have some nice exhibits along the way to explain what happens. Like a Disney ride, the tour ends in the gift shop.

Would not recommend this for a tour.

First, no place to work close by. Watch out for hidden "no parking" zones on the streets near the mint. They are not painted red or yellow and the signs can be at the end of the street or blocked by trees.

Visited back in September around 9:30 am. Not a single person on the work floor during the time that I walked through the upper gallery. Nothing really to see. Very disappointing.

Great museum, and its free! I really enjoyed seeing the coins being made, and the very informative self-guided tour. Don't miss the beautiful Louis Comfort Tiffany Mosaics as you enter in the lobby.

Pretty cool place to visit. Free self guided your. Down side is the stamping was on winter break but still cool and very informational.
