Loved my experience here as a kid on a field trip. Even better when you're 25! Very informative tours and just a unique experience in general.

Great place to go for Canada Day especially if you have kids. They normally have your standard bouncy castle, food vendors, gift shop, and best of all a hande crank coin press! The Mint every year makes a Canada Day die and stamp and everyone can go up with a coin blank and crank out their own stamped authentic Canadian... More

It was a super cold day and wanted to get out.....the Mint it is. I didn't know anything about the minting process nor that we make coin for other countries. They have a tour guide to help explain the process from start to finish. I didn't know there was so much involved to make 'change'. I was really impressed that... More

We arrived later than expected at this out of the way Mint, but it was well worth the inconvenience. We had a private tour with a knowledgeable guide who explained not only what we saw but also engaged our imagination with anecdotes (who knew the toonie's design was not the original choice?) and explanations. I had no idea that all... More

Lot of changes from years back. One they didn't charge you could look around for free and two there was more to see years back. But over not a bad place to visit. Great gift shop. I'd recommend it. I put 2016 down as it does not go back any futher but was there last in 2012 when visiting Winnipeg.

Beautiful building and Claire our tour guide was very informative. The tour is only 45 minutes long and even the youngest kids made it through without any complaining. I learned alot of interesting facts about the inner workings of the mint and will be paying more attention to the coins I receive that could be possible collector coins.

December 30th, 2016 , visited with out of town family The Royal Canadian Mint. A beautifully designed building from the 60's sits on a vast parcel of land at the south west corner of Trans Canada Highway and Lagimodiere Blvd (Highway 59). Boutique staff, Andrea and Christine showed genuine hospitality to our group of eleven and explained through the tour... More
