The basics

The United States Mint in Denver offers free tours for adults and kids over the age of seven. Tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis for six tours daily, and tickets can only be picked up for that day. Security is tight in the building, so adults are expected to carry photo identification, and all visitors are subject to security screenings. Those who simply want to take in the impressive architecture from the outside can see the mint as part of a sightseeing tour of Denver.
