    We went during a long weekend and it was over crowded. It was quite interesting to see but to pay $3 to push a button & make your own $1 coin is a bit rich haha. Overall, it was a good experience.  more »

    Fascinating journey through the minting of coins process... We spent a long time watching Titan (machine) maneovere massive drums of coins around the workshop floor. Great experience for kids.

    It was good and interesting. It was great fun as I am only 10 years old. I loved it when I got to make my own coin. The gift shop was good too, but it disappointed me because there was no 2007 for the birth coins.

    Great place to take the family. The kids really enjoyed the visit. I found the experience very informative. There is also large range of exhibits to view.

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
