The mint tour was clear and well organized. Presented a great deal of information about the modern minting process. Was impressed by the number of countries that this mint provides currency services for. The half hour tour was enjoyable and I'd advise booking in advance to guarantee a spot.

It was an interesting tour, but they booked waaay to many people for ours. There was at least 20 people. The tour guide was pleasant and for the most part spoke loud enough. Now that we have been once, there will be no need to go again.

Great place to visit for a quick 45 minute tour. The staff are very knowledgeable and we learned a lot of cool things about the Mint. Was able to see how money gets made during the tour which was really neat. The pavilion of flags you drive through on the way in was really beautiful...we had no idea Canada makes... More

Was really neat to see how coins are made! They had lots of coins to look at & also purchase. The coolest part was the huge 50 LB bar of gold, we got to lift it! It was worth some $500,000!

We really enjoyed our visit to the Mint. One piece of advice - check ahead of time for when the tours head out. We did not do that and ended up having to wait awhile.

We stopped here because it was on our way back t o the hotel, it was about 3:30 pm & the mint closes at 5. We looked around for a few minutes and inquired about the tours. We (as seniors) only had to pay $5 each for a 45 minute tour. It was interesting to see how the coins are... More

The mint is one of two you can visit in Canada. This one makes only coins [We found out the polymer money making mint doesnt give tours. :( ] It's not a bad drive, $15 for a family...so not expensive (though I swear all the other mints I have been to were free), its handicap accessible... there is just one...

We toured the mint while in Winnipeg for the World Cup. The tour was interesting, informative, entertaining. Well worth the stop if you are in Winnipeg!

Definitely a worth while tour to take. We learned many interesting facts, like about the poppy quarter called the spy quarter. We also had a great tour guide, his name was Ben. Check out there coins to purchase, they make great gifts.
