went with a friend

It was a little interesting and a tad boring. Would I go again, no, but it was worth going and seeing it once!

It was a good experience through and through. The best part was being able to hold a half a million dollar bar of gold in my hands and take pictures of it in the process.

interesting tour of to learn more about Canadian money and how it is made. Kids liked getting to pick up the gold bar. Great gift shop with special coins to purchase. Not crowded and tour guide was willing to take questions. The flags in front of the building were interesting.

Interesting place to visit if just to go into the gift store area buying some coin sets which we did. You can also do tours if you like. Worth a visit!

Very interesting tour of the facilities.... a lot on the process. Kids loved it too. There is a coin store on the premisses, and kids can lift a bar of gold.

An interesting spot. It is very hands off since you are looking through glass windows. I was surprised to learn that the Mint makes currency for many other countries. This explained the lovely array of flags outside- one for each country for which currency is made.

While we didn't have a lot of time to explore, we found that they had even less set up for exploration. The "self-guided tour", was essentially a walk way that overlooked the operations, with a few displays and TVs that were not operational. There was nothing much in the way of interactivity, and other than learning a little about some... More

Called to inquire about a guided tour, and was told the earliest was 1:30 pm due to school children booked for 11 am, but was offered that we could do our own self tour if we had wanted to, anytime after 11:30 am. The guided tour we were told; is really the exact same as going through yourself except that... More

A very worthwhile place to visit. Tours are informative and staff are very friendly. Try to go when the mint is operational Tuesday to Friday. Great gift shop for the coin lover .

Tuesday-Friday is the time to go to this, unless you want to go and not see any machines running! Free admission and paid tours, but the tour area can be accessed for free.
