Very nice museum. Convenient parking for a fee. We spent an afternoon here and very much enjoyed all areas including the planetarium. Check out the planetarium program schedule first so that you can see the program you want before proceeding to museum.

The many galleries of this museum are each unique. Displays are visually appealing and the Nonsuch Gallery stands alone......talk about being taken back in time!

Although almost 50 years old the Manitoba Museum is still an excellent place to visit and learn. I recently conducted some workshops st the museum and the classroom facility was very good with everything I needed from technology to a sink for cleaning up. The museum is currently in the midst of a major renewal project with plans to revitalize... More

This museum gives you an incredible understanding of the beginnings of Manitoba, the First People, and the history and cultural. It contains wonderful dioramas and displays. Also the replica of the ship Nonsuch is enclosed inside the museum within a realistic port scene. You can climb aboard too. It houses dinosaurs, inuit artifacts, clothing, etc. We weren't able to stay... More

We recently dropped into the museum for 45 minutes, even made a mad dash for the science gallery in the lower level. I was impressed to see little changes and updates the museum has done since our last visit in Spring. We visit museums every time we are in another city, and I must say I still love this one!...

I visited the Manitoba Museum during some down time while in Winnipeg. The Museum is located downtown. Admission was a relatively modest $11. I stayed for a little less than 90 minutes, and visited the exhibits that focused on Manitoba history of various periods, including a significant number of displays on Indigenous (First Nations) groups. Overall the exhibits were interesting,... More

We had a lovely informative English lady as our guide and this enhanced our visit. We have always heard about the Hudson Bay Company on trips to Canada (and seen their stores) and the Manitoba Museum has many HBC artefacts that we found interesting. The port of Churchill, Manitoba was vital to the HBC in getting their goods to Europe... More

Excellent Natural History museum. Very affordable admission. Wandering thru the exhibits was sort of like a maze, but arrows on the floor kept you going in the correct direction. Many different time periods were shown, as well as the various biomes that make up Manitoba. The only downside was no cafe or food service other than snack vending machine. With... More

We're happy you visited and had a great time! We are in the the Exchange District with some of the city's best restaurants just a minute or two away, or visitors are more than welcome to bring their own snacks/meals. More

Make the time to go and see the entire collection. Such a rich history told in life size dioramas, artifacts, cultural collections with personable guides who help bring it all to life. Well worth your time, and terrific for kids who will not get bored!
