Learned a lot about coin minting, and the guide was excellent... very knowledgeable. A beautiful building with many fascinating areas.

On our trip to Winnipeg, we finally visited the mint. This is where they make coins for all over the world, I don't believe this is where they print the bills, just coins. There were some interactive displays on the main floor for my 9 year olds, but through the tour they were a little bored. My teenager and I... More

There are only two places in Canada minting money - Ottawa and Winnipeg. You can see the actual place making money. And sometimes they displace the real goldbar, and you can touch and lift it. But don't try to take it. :-)

We went on a Sunday. We did a self tour but it would have been much better if there was activity in the Mint. I will go back during a week day.

I liked the fact they have handicapped parking close to the door. It was an interesting experience which travelers should take the time to visit. There was nothing that I didn't like about the mint.

Even though we went when the machines were idle it was very interesting to see how coins are minted and here the history of the Winnipeg mint.

We went on Canada day for the free admission and activities. It was really busy and we did not get to see or hear what we wanted so we booked a tour and went back. We had a fantastic tour guide who was interesting and entertaining as well as good with the kids. We used coupons from the Show and... More

We enjoyed our tour of the mint. Very fascinating. There were some children on the tour who asked good questions. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting. Well worth the visit. Amazing how many other countries that they make their coins!

There was a lot that I didn't know about our coins and how they are made. This is a great tour for both adults and children. Know going in that you don't get really close to where the coins are made (for obvious reasons) you view everything from above and no pictures are allowed during the tour. The tour was... More

Spend an hour at the Mint in the 'Peg - worth your while. The 45 minute tour is very informative, call in advance to book your space - no waiting on arrival. Group size was a bit too big, hard to hear the guide sometimes over the chatting kiddies. Age appropriate might be 6-7 years. Our guide Eric was excellent,... More
