This museum is all about the history of Manitoba. They have so much for you to go through it takes at least 2 visits. Pleasant staff that are very knowledgeable. If you can go when they have a behind the scenes tour: Do It! definitely worth the time invested!

I've been going to this excellent museum since it opened back in the late 1960s(?), first as a wide-eyed elementary school student and then later as an equally-wide-eyed adult as I took in the subtle differences that elevate this museum to a First-Class venue. Along with an excellent museum composed of various amazing galleries, the Museum has one of Canada's... More

We recently bought a membership during their December promotion so we're eager to check things out. The place is great. The kids loved the dinosaur fossils, the car building, the Lego exhibit, and the pulley chairs. We are excited to head back to see more of upstairs as well as take in some of the shows. Some stuff we learned:... More

I used to visit the museum often with children in tow. They loved the bear in the tunnel, the movie theatre with old black and white movies - we always had to watch at least a few, the Nonsuch and especially they loved the science museum. We had to stop there for a few hours after every children's symphony concert.... More

My husband and I took our 8 year old grandson to the museum this afternoon. I wanted to write this while fresh on my mind. Our first complaint was the museum parking lot across the street from front door. It hasn't snow heavy in Winnipeg for 3 weeks, yet the lot has not been cleared. Snow covered drive and lots... More

The Manitoba Museum is a wonderful museum about the natural and human history of Manitoba and surrounding area. Exhibits start with dinosaurs and go to present day. Some interesting confederation stuff there right now too at the very beginning. We go a few times every year and love it.

I spent many hours at this museum with my children when it was the Museum of Man and Nature. The kids loved it almost as much as the zoo and often would have trouble deciding which they wanted to visit. Pretty impressive to be chosen over monkeys and gophers!! Take your time and. Is it often. Always more to discover.

As a lifelong Winnipegger I've been there dozens of times and always loved the place. Favourite galleries include the Nonsuch, Urban Gallery and the HBC room. This time I took my sister in law, her 14 year old son and her friend, and her two teens all visiting from Mexico. They were enthralled by so much of the museum. Little... More

I've been numerous times and always have a great time. The ship is a highlight, as well as the planetarium of course

You're not alone! The Nonsuch is the highlight of many people's tours and the Planetarium shows are an experience you can't get anywhere else in the city. Thanks for the review and we look forward to your next visit! More
