The museum collection is wonderful for both children and adults. Our tour guide through the collection was terrific, young, excited, informative and had a great big smile the entire... More

Small changes go a long way to draw you in, The rotating features (Mummies) Pirates are worth the price alone. Our pricing had the Real Pirates and 1 gallery for the same price. We opted for the museum which we had not... More

I really liked the museum's dioramas - wild buffalo, polar bear, wolves, natives, wheat farmers - and also recreation of 18/early 19th century Winnipeg. Planetarium was good too. Leave at least 4 hours if you want to see all in some depth.

It's a real breathtaking experience. And it feels like you would really go back in time if you focus more on the history of the artifacts and display. 3 hours isn't enough for us to thoroughly visit the museum(only covered 30% of the whole museum) so we are confident that we will go back here again.

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

A great venue for those who have never visited the museum. Some more new exhibits would be appreciated. A good family value.

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

Very nice museum. I especially enjoyed the iconic dioramas that were created by the late Clarence Tillenius. He created them in such a way as to make you feel you are in the scene. Lots of interesting artifacts too be seen.
