Tour the Mint

Very interesting and educational tour. Not to mention the cool building itself. Worth a trip to the southern part of town if you are ever in Winnipeg.

This is an interesting tour of how our money is made. Flags of world contracts line the drive in. You can see and purchase new coin designs/collection. There is a hands-on trivia board and guarded gold bar.

This iconic building on the east side of Manitoba is hard to miss. This was a very interesting tour of their facility. They have a very nice lobby and gift shop with plenty to offer in the way of coins and commemorative pieces for sale. The minting process was explained very well and the tour took you along each part... More

Decided not to take the 45-minute tour since the building's lobby and exhibits were older, which was disappointing. The guide told us we'd be walking through a tunnel and peering through more windows and learning about the process. [You can peer into a couple of windows in the lobby area where you can see some of the manufacturing process]. The... More

Really enjoyed our visit today.. Didn't expect to spend so much time but we were there for 2 hours and were the last to leave! Our guide Ray was exceptional and his passion for coins and his knowledge was impressive! Well worth the $15 entrance fee for our family of 4 👍 As it is a Mint to produce coins... More

We got to the Mint right at 9:00 am and they opened the doors on the dot. Since we were only there to have a quick look around and buy some souvenirs, they helped us out with friendly advice, background information and information about exhibits.

There is a fee for the tour and reservations are recommended. We were walk-ins and were able to join a tour about to start. The flags in front of the Mint are from nations that the Mint makes coins or does some mint work for the nation. Our guide was knowledgeable about the mint. Many coins and tokens, made at... More

I know it would be impossible to allow visits to the floor of the working Mint, but watching machines standing idle through plate glass windows is hardly a tour or very interesting. I visited last summer with family from out of town and now that I have gone once, I would not go again. Perhaps a more interactive area could... More
