Plan ahead and make a reservation for your field trip. Be on time as the doors are locked promptly behing you. You are not allowed to bring anything with you except man-size wallet, phone and keys, etc. You are required to go through metal detectors and remove all batteries from cell phones. There are lots of photos of the process because there is no actual coin-making while tours are being given.Take special notice of the architecture and decor of the old part of the building at the end of the tour. The old guard station and the huge doors at the exit are amazing.

This is a great place to teach about money, but they do push you along a bit too quickly. However, I understand the security concerns require a quick trip. I would suggest doing some online research before going so you have a better idea about a mint and can use your time there more wisely. I wish we had done this. They have a gift shop you can go through at the end, but we found the prices to be higher than other places, so buyer beware.
