While You're Here

Welcome Desk

Our friendly team at the Welcome Desk are here to answer any Mint-related questions (and will try to answer any non-Mint-related questions!).

Parents and carers

Children of all ages are welcome at the Mint. There are change tables available in the accessible toilet, and a dedicated children’s area in the gallery space with activities for the young (and young at heart!)


Get connected with our free Wi-Fi – ask our Visitor Experience Hosts how.


Visitors are welcome to take photos at the Mint (unless you see signs asking you not to).

Commercial photography needs prior approval. You can email your request to info@ramint.gov.au.
