We went on Canada day for the free admission and activities. It was really busy and we did not get to see or hear what we wanted so we booked a tour and went back. We had a fantastic tour guide who was interesting and entertaining as well as good with the kids. We used coupons from the Show and... More

We enjoyed our tour of the mint. Very fascinating. There were some children on the tour who asked good questions. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting. Well worth the visit. Amazing how many other countries that they make their coins!

There was a lot that I didn't know about our coins and how they are made. This is a great tour for both adults and children. Know going in that you don't get really close to where the coins are made (for obvious reasons) you view everything from above and no pictures are allowed during the tour. The tour was... More

Spend an hour at the Mint in the 'Peg - worth your while. The 45 minute tour is very informative, call in advance to book your space - no waiting on arrival. Group size was a bit too big, hard to hear the guide sometimes over the chatting kiddies. Age appropriate might be 6-7 years. Our guide Eric was excellent,... More

I had lived in Winnipeg for almost 20 years before moving out West but had never visited the Mint. The tour was very affordable and informative. My husband and I enjoyed it immensely. Not a good fit for young children but for those over 10 would find it interesting as well.

There is no doubt the tour was informative and educational but it was not much different than reading an article about coins production. Though some of the machines were working, they were so far that you rely on the information of tour guide. It would be much better if we could see the step by step process in real time.... More

Eric the tour Guide was good. Children too young to understand anything about the tour made continual chatter.. .and parents were not polite enough to move them away from the speaker/guide. I recommend a note be added "Not recommended for children under five years of age." The whole experience would benefit from an optional (additional) video show, which would show... More

We were greeted upon entering with a very friendly staff. Ben did our tour and was great at keeping it interesting for the kids. He even showed my three kids how to make mint tokens. There are many interactive displays with very interesting facts. To make it better, they should give items that can't be purchased from their website. Going... More

The mint was a fun and educational place to visit. You can see people working at the mint producing coins. The whole tour will take you about a good hour to hour and a half. They also have a gift and coin shop. The July tour had a $500,000 gold bar that you could pick up (under supervision). They also... More

Book in advance to make sure you get in on a tour. We found the tour interesting, a bit simpler than we some how thought but still enjoyable. Still an enjoyable, reasonably priced couple hours. What I found really interesting was the statistics of what they can produce and where their customers are. Future coin development was also quite interesting.... More
