I was skeptical, but this was one of the most fun places we visited! The tour guides do a great job making a could be boring thing into something really awesome! :)

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

I had never been- so felt it was long overdue. I think you have to go when there is some sort of production work going on. We were there when there was nothing happening. It was "adequate". i may have to give it a second chance.

we took a tour of the site and got some really interesting information about how money is made in Winnipeg, what surprised me that they are making coins for many other countries

Couldn't resist the opportunity to stop here. The grounds and the building are outstanding and beautiful. The big lake out front has a huge fountain in the middle and the grounds are covered with hundreds of Canada Geese. This is a must stop when visiting Winnipeg.

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. :-)
