|Goofing around at The Mint|

|You are only allowed to take pictures at the gold bar in case you are wondering |
why I have included two pictures of that!

The Mint is right by the National Gallery of Canada and a short walk from Bytown Market so you can easily combine a trip to The Mint with a visit to one of those other attractions.
Things to keep in mind:
- Reservations are recommended. When we went it wasn't busy so the man who wandered up and wanted to join the tour was able to do so but I suspect if it is busy you could be turned away. You can make reservations by calling: 1-800-276-7714.
- It costs $18 for a family of four to take the tour.
- They have a pretty good gift shop. The tour basically starts and ends in the gift shop so you'll see it whether you want to or not. We picked up some Christmas presents while we were there!
- You can't take pictures during the tour. The only place you can take pictures inside The Mint is with the gold bar.
