Went with a few of my friends for a tour. It's very reasonable - $6.00 / person - and interesting to see currency being made. Our tour guide had alot of interesting stories for us. Would definitely recommend this as a stop! The gift shop had alot of amazing coins, some hand painted!

The tour is very interesting, but as a collector I would say that. The family liked it too, so it was a good couple of hours for the tour, shopping and walking around the site.

Went to Ottawa with the intent to visit the Royal Canadian Mint. 3 adults (2 seniors) and 1 teenager cost us $19CDN, so in our opinion was inexpensive. I didn't book a tour in advance, because we were going on a weekday and it worked to our advantage, we didn't have to wait long for the next tour. The tour... More

We went on a Saturday. The tour was great for the family, especially a 7 year old who loves watching How It's Made. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Kids enjoyed it but would have been even more excited had the factory been operating, so if you want to see it in operation, make sure you come during the work... More

This was a very inexpensive tour which lasted abut 45 minutes. It is near other tourist attractions and worth the visit.

my children enjoyed the tour and especially liked holding the gold bar at the end of the tour. The tour ends in the gift shop.
