Fantastic dioramas and a wealth of historical background and information. A must see is the full scale replica of the fur trading ship, the Non Such. So very many interesting displays. Take the guided tour to get the most out of your visit.

Had best part of a day to kill in Winnipeg whilst waiting for our flight. Looked through trip-advisor for something to do and the museum was recommended, so, grabbed a taxi and went. Good decision, it is one of the best, if not the best, museum I've been to. Exceptionally we'll laid out, plenty of written information if you wanted... More

This was a surprise highlight of our trip. It tied together our understanding of Winnipeg and was a very good time to boot! The seemingly endless rooms are very well laid out and they have very helpful volunteers and staff. We were there for 3 hours but could have made it a full day event. We learned a tremendous amount... More

There is lot to see here about the history of Manitoba from pre-historic animals, through First Nations art, to a Planetarium (fun) and a Science Gallery - which is actually just some science experiments models for children, probably wasn't worth paying the extra for just adults. We took at least 4 hours, I think you could take even longer. It... More

We love the Manitoba Museum, and how you walk through and then discover this full-sized actual ship, a reproduction of the Nonsuch, which was actually sailed across the Atlantic before being installed in the museum. And then the amazing Hudson Bay Collection, so beautifully and carefully preserved, showing the rich quality of work done by hand in days gone by... More

Having read great reviews before coming to Winnipeg, the Manitoba Museum was definitely on our to do list. Our group consisted of myself, my fiancé, and his parents, and the museum provided something for each of us to be rather impressed with! The main part of the museum we spent our time in was great. The old fashioned town and... More

After reading other reviews we were undecided as to whether or not we could do all three parts of the museum in a day. We took a chance and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We spent the morning exploring the museum upstairs and found it to be a perfect blend of history and science. We stopped at every exhibit and found... More

We spent the entire day at the Manitoba Museum. The upstairs museum was very interesting and all about Manitoba. Two of my teenagers love science and were fascinated with the beginning part which was very science laden. I preferred the ending part which had more history about Manitoba. The Nonsuch ship was especially interesting. We all really enjoyed it. After... More

Good for the whole family, show you all the historical aspects of the colonization of the Manitoba province. They also have a great ship identical to those that were used in the 1800 for the fur trade.

The best thing about this museum is the real experiences like the little town and the ship that children (and adults) can enjoy.
