Hadn't been to the Museum for about 15 years so wasn't sure what to expect. Unfortunately not a lot has changed as far as the actual rooms and displays. There were some newer displays especially as to the fossils and aboriginal heritage but a lot remains the same. I got the impression that nothing has happened in Manitoba since the... More

We spent a Sunday afternoon going through this museum. It was very well done. I would recommend it for all ages. It includes both Natural History and the History of Manitoba. Children will especially enjoy the replica of the ship. The dioramas with the animals are wonderful.

My niece and I had a great time visiting this museum. We went to the museum galleries and the science gallery. The science gallery is definitely geared to small children. The museum galleries were fantastic! Very well put together and cover a wide range of Manitoba history. We loved the ship!!

I remember going as a young kid, whether it be from school, brownies, my parents, whatever, it was always fun. It sometimes feels like it needs an upgrade, some areas have gotten an upgrade since I had my wedding there. BTW, they do offer wedding packages, after hours, do have to pay for security guards as well (it sucks, but... More

A museum like many others, I am a person that likes the outside, so this is not worth if it's a nice sunny day.

The museum is centrally located and very well designed. It has 3 levels, including a section for Science and Planetarium. Need to send at least a day to understand the history of the world, history of Canada, especially the province of Manitoba, the old trade route and the Hudson bay. Wonderful to see some fossils of those massive living creatures,... More
