If you want to know how money is made this is the place. You get to see the factory and how and when money is made before installation. Really cool for the kids! You get to also pick up a one million dollar gold bar and take pictures with family! :)

Took the kids and even they were impressed, from the history of the mint to the statistics the questions abound. Take a few hours off to see it -- Maybe bring home a souvenir

I visited the Mint in the springtime, Winnipeg was still covered in snow. I toured the Mint without a guide and it was great to see the coin-making process. The halls are lined with huge windows where you can watch the coins being made and stamped in the factory. There was a large amount of information about coins in Canada... More

The Mint is well worth a tour. The staff is very knowledgeable and answers questions well. To see how our coins are minted and handled makes us aware of the many precautions that affect the manufacturing. Also learned about the many foreign coins made here in Winnipeg.

Great place to visit when in Winnipeg. It is a bit far away, so, with a public transit it will take you at least one hour with quite bit a walk to get there. Taxi is about $20 to downtown. Royal Mint is really great place well organized for visits. We took a guided tour and our guide was Ms... More

This is an excellent and informative place to visit-- even the gift shop, which sells very high quality collector coins, is informative. You get a tour of the facility at a comfortable pace with a knowledgeable guide. The best part is watching the mint in action as millions of coins from many nations are struck. I was impressed at how... More

Arrived a little early for the tour. There were enough activities and displays to keep us busy. My husband went ahead and did the self guided tour on the second level as well. The women showing the items for sale were very knowledgeable and friendly. Wish I would have bought one of their fabulous coin pendants. Tour was great but... More
