Honestly, we went because we had an extra hour or two to kill in Winnipeg. It was a decent museum to kill an hour or two, but I honestly wouldn't plan a vacation around visiting here.

This museum has everything from huge displays of buffalo hunts to small interactive areas that are great learning spots of adults and children alike. to view it properly you need more than a couple of hours, and it is very easy to kill several hours if you so choose.. There is definitely way more than you need to entertain and... More

I was interested in the "Nonsuch" replica ketch they have inside, and some of the information on history of the area.

Did not know what to expect to find at the Manitoba Museum but found a real gem. Very informative and educational for all ages. The youngsters loved the old reconstructed ship. Adults could have spent a lot longer. Great job by Winnipeg to have such an outstanding museum in their city. Nice cafe next door across from city hall.

I decided to visit the Manitoba Museum while I was in Winnipeg because I love museums. The admission is decent $10 for adults for the main exhibit hall with no extras included so it is great value. There are some really interesting exhibit galleries. There are quite a few hands-on/interactive displays, but it was a bit disappointing when none of... More

I have to admit that timing played a significant role in our positive experience at the museum. We arrived at about 230 in the afternoon just as many children were getting back on their busses. The Nunsuch ship was pretty cool, and an interesting thing to see and learn about. Though the size was smaller than expected. The endless supply... More

We only had time to visit the history section of this museum They had the science and planetarium parts we didn't do. They charged by the number of sections you wanted to see, which I found odd.

This museum is remarkable and authentic. We highly advise visiting as soon as you can. Visit the Nonsuch, the Planetarium, and any special galleries. You will love the 3-D diarama at the entrance.

Lots to see and arranged well. Historical information on the war years and Manitoba's contributions to the war effort. Could have more healthy type food available.
