Worth the visit! Many wonderful displays! The two other parts of the Museum are the Science Centre and the Planatarium. You have to buy a ticket for each. The Nonsuch is a wonderful display and one can sometimes have a guide on the ship who describes many interesting facts about it.

The attendant of the special exhibit was knowledgeable and friendly, and offered a lot of unique information about the history of the items on... More

Very good sized museum with several interesting exhibits. The best of which, in my opinion, was the replica ship display dated back to the fur trading days. It's a full scale replica of a ship that once sailed a long time ago, you can board the ship and walk around its cabin and deck. I also attended the planetarium show,... More

My littles always love the Nonsuch, the prehistoric area, where a screen depicts Manitoba as s Ocean, we spend a lot of time here watching the sea creatures come up on... More

The museum changes the artifacts regularly, so you must go often to see many different items. This museum is located in the exchange, so one can spend some leisure time walking around.
