Nice day out. Lots of things to keep the kids interested. Our kids loved hearing about the money they love to spend.

Beautiful waiting area. Great tour guide. Wished we'd had more time to view videos in the non-public areas, or at least have them available on line. Good talk with staff after the tour. Wasn't much happening the day we were there, but good explanations by tour guide. Worth the 'Senior Price' paid, but I'd be hesitant if they doubled pricing.... More

This visit was impromptu but I did not regret it. As I drove up to the building, it reminded me of buildings in science fiction movies. Once inside, I was amazed at what goes on behind closed doors. The Mint, besides making all of our Canadian coins, also makes coins for many other countries. We had a very nice female... More

This place is a complete snore. Even if your interested in the process of how money is made its still very boring. The tour is over priced and you don't actually get to see much more than you would if you didn't bother to go on the tour. The hour I spent here would have been better spent watching grass... More

This had not been near the top of our 'to do' list whilst visiting Winnipeg for 3 days, but our local friends wanted to take us there so we went. It was a very worthwhile visit and the 90 minutes did not drag at all. The Mint makes coins for so many countries and the story of the process very... More

Not a long tour but absolutely fascinating to see how our coins are made. Did not know that we make coins for other countries too. Very nice tour guide Real. I was able to hold a gold bar worth half a million dollars! It was chained down.

Was very suprised to learn about what all the mint does. Our tour guide was entertaining, but not in a good way for her. ALso some of the people we toured with were amazing with the questions they asked. I was embarassed to be an American. Besides that it is pretty cool. Lots of cool coins to look at and... More

This is one of Winnipeg’s more unusual attractions and definitely worthwhile for a one hour visit. The mint is located just outside Winnipeg proper in a semi-rural location that allows for good views of the very attractive mint building. The best place to get a good picture is from … Approaching the mint you pass through the colourful (parade of... More

We were a bit rushed but we felt that we had to have a look at the Mint while we were in Winnipeg. We flew through our tour and it was very interesting and informative. I had no idea how many countries have their coins produced here! I loved being able to buy coins that were in 'mint' condition at... More
