  • The mint has an excellent facade to photograph but the excitement ends there. The tour offered inside for a fee is very short with not much to look at other than the manufacturing machines and workers at the mint. There are no exhibitions or interesting things to see. If you have seen the mint in Ottawa, this mint tour is exact the same.
  • We visited during the Doors Open Winnipeg weekend. It was actually a pretty interesting tour. It would probably be better to tour when they are actually running during the weekday and their make your own coin machines were broken.
  • Very busy place for a Saturday! Staff are very helpful and friendly. Coin sets are remarkable.
  • This place is amazing if you like Canadian culture history and money!! Staff is very knowledgeable and the stuff in this place is spectacular!
  • Not interesting. You can buy the same coins in post office. Only beautiful building is worth to see.
