Have been to this mint before years and years ago when I was 8 years old in 2005. The tour guide was friendly and gift shop staff just as much. The security guard however was extremely aloof and unfriendly when I entered in the building with my ticket in hand, which I ended up going on tour anyway because it was valid (but being aloof over a ticket? Seriously? Low IQ much?). Went on the tour for a while, probably lasted 30 minutes or an hour or two (I don't really remember how long the tour was but it was pretty long). People touring were nice and the tour was great and the people who ran the building were mainly friendly and professional at their job.

Tickets are free and are first come, first serve. Arrived at 9:30, and got tickets for the 12:30 tour. Have to arrive 30 minutes before tour to go through security. No bags allowed. If visiting during summer months or spring break, arrive at 5 am as tickets will be gone by 7:10am. Ticket window opens at 7am. Tour itself was ok... Not sure what I was expecting, it's a guided tour mixed in with self guided bits. After the guide says their script, you're free to roam around and read the information panels.. they give you plenty of time to read everything, maybe too much time.. there is a feeling of waiting around in between each room.. staff is super friendly but I do think the tour could be a bit more animated and interactive. Would I line up at 5am during peak season, no way... Off peak, why not. :) There is $12 and $13 (all day or $5-6 per hour) parking nearby. Walking distance to the capital and other sites as well.

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!!

Kimberly Moreno | Jan 15, 2020
John Maier | Jan 16, 2020

With it getting closer to summer and the weather warming up people will start to line up earlier every day. Tours are Mondays thru Thursdays. There are no slow days unless the weather in the morning is bad. People will start lining up for tickets as early as 5am. Tickets to get tickets (I know, its odd) are handed out early. Actual tickets are handed out at 7am. They go fast.
