I found this tour to be an interesting experience. However, I've been to far better and newer more up to date museums All in all I would recommend taking children there. As adults, it's not very captivating.

We're in the middle of a big Capital Campaign which will renew 42% of the Museum's Galleries which will create a new and engaging experience for all age groups. We hope we can make your "interesting" experience and make it an amazing one! More

This is the only museum I have ever paid to become a member. The museum constantly has new features going through it such as dinosaur alive exhibits, pirates exhibits and others. The museum has a full scale REAL age of sail boat inside the museum called the "Nonsuch". My daughter (7 years old) loves our trips to the museum. Their... More

Need to add some new exhibits, please go to the ROM and learn a thing or two, and add those experiences to the Manitoba Museum. For example, can add more nature exhibits, and mineralogy or gemology. Otherwise, been there once every 3 years and not a great deal has really changed.

You'll be happy to know we're putting the finishing touches on our newly renovated Alloway Hall, nearly doubling the size, and we're opening it with a HUGE new exhibit this spring! We're also in the middle of a capital campaign which will renew 42% of the Museum Galleries. We'd love to have you come back and hopefully change your mind! More

I enjoy the museum, but if I visit once every 5 or 6 years, it is usually the same as the last time.

The museum was pretty good and my favourite area is the part in the end...it's the town and Charlie Chaplin film. I remember going when I was a kid and I liked they kept some of the old displays. One part I wasn't impressed with and it's only minor, not enough drinking fountains and I understand it's a new building... More

The Urban Gallery is a favourite for many visitors at the Museum! We're sorry you weren't able to get a lock for the locker. Sometimes the locks aren't returned, but we've replaced all the missing locks so this shouldn't be an issue again. More

The main museum is an eye opener to a province that is far from boring, but fascinating. We specifically enjoyed the Hudson Bay Company history and memorabilia, a museum within a museum. The Terry Fox travelling exhibit was on show, a perfect representation of Terry and his run for cancer which made him our hero. Thank you.

We love our province and Terry Fox too! The reactions people had and the stories they shared with us showed why this exhibit was so important and how significant Terry Fox was to Canadians. More

I hadnt been to the museum for many years and thought we should take the Grandson to see what he thought. He totally enjoyed it. While some of it was beyond his years (he was a little worried about the stuffed people - had to explain paper mache) I know that as he learns about dinosaurs, the settling of the... More
