This compact Mint that makes all legal coinage for Canada is worth a tour. The mint is state of the art and even produces coins for other countries , under contract. The tour is about 1 hour and very informative.

We went to the Mint for march break and it was boring. My mom has always wanted to go and my kids were really excited to see how money was made. The machines were running that day but you still could not see much. Every machine the guide talked about was hidden in the back behind piles of other stuff.... More

I didn't expect to get as much from this tour as I thought but it really was interesting. The guide made it very interesting and they have made the entry as interactive as possible.

It was really interesting to see how coins are made, and how many countries have their coins made here. You can also browse the store and get something interesting after. They also have a gold bar that you can pick up.

I was a little worried about going there as all the reviews were not that good. My husband was keen to go and so we did. It was a great tour. We didn't realize that the mint made coins for so many other countries. It was very informative. The building is also very impressive. Not be missed.

This is a good trip. They give you a tour and I bought some collectors coins for my grandchildren. It was interesting to see a money factory. I wish I had one.

We really enjoyed the guided tour despite the fact that it was the weekend and coin production was not currently in progress. If possible try to go on a weekday so you can see the action. Nonetheless, we learned a lot of interesting facts on the 45 minute tour and were able to see the production area through windows and... More

It was interesting to see how they made coins but for some areas you are quite far away and can't really see the manufacturing that well.

I've never done the tour but have lived 5 mins away my whole life. It's a great place to explore the greenery/ponds/forest that surrounds the mint. In the winter also great for sledding. Lots of places to eat and grocery shop within a 2-10 min drive.

I grew up in Winnipeg and remember going to the Mint on a school trip. Today we had the place to ourselves and while it was a weekend day, we were still able to go on a tour and walk through the process. I would recommend that all the TV screens showing the process be operational and it might have... More
