Its always interesting to see the shows at the planetarium, and the hands on exhibits in the science gallery are a hit with the grandkids- the Nonesuch exhibit is a great time for all and walking through the museum seeing our history is very informative- we always see something different

Fun. I take my grand kids at least once a year. There is so much to look at. I remember going when I was in grade 6 with my school. You can learn a lot and so many things to look at. G

This museum has a full scale replica of the Nonsuch, the Hudson's Bay Company fur trade ship that sailed to Hudson's Bay in the early 1800. You can go into the ship and there are very well informed interpreters there to advise you on all aspects of a sailors life in those times. The ship is fully rigged and in... More

The museum is a must see the next time you are in Winnipeg. It is like reliving history. Do plan to spend a few hours touring the building to get the full effect of the powerful exhibits.
