A decent natural history museum. The coolest part was the ship and village (Nonsuch). It can be covered in a couple of hours. Wheelchair access could be better.

I have to admit, I wasted a lot of time at the "natural history section" at the beginning of the recommended path. (This part doesn't stand a chance when compared to the dinosaur exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.) So I ran out of time, when I entered the real cool and informative parts on "Beings of the... More

I've been to several natural history museums. This was pretty good. I wish we had a little more time to spend because the majority of the museum is about natural history and the end is about human history (which I find more interesting). I could park for only 2 hours so we had to leave early. We probably could've spent... More

The only thing I dislike is the parking, its hard tk get to and doesnt take visa/debit cards. We love the big ship and even come in twice a year and the kids never get bored of the displays

Our favorite things to do when traveling is not shopping or dining, but visiting local museums. The Manitoba Museum was very interesting and in some cases, eye opening. It is very well organized in that going from section to section made a lot of historic sense. The displays and exhibits were very well presented and the explanations were very complete... More

I've been to Winnipeg on a multiple trips and was taken to this museum during one of our stays. This museum is amazing! Just getting the history of Manitoba is worth the price of admission. We've been to a few museums in the U.S., but this was the first one that lets you interact with a lot of the exhibits... More

Great and interesting exhibits in the museum. Showcase history of Manitoba. Has a big replica of a ship. Museum is not that big. About 2 hours to fully walk though all the exhibits and read all the information.

This museum displays the history, people, geology, and is easily laid out to wander around. It is not that big and you probably need an hour or so to see the whole thing. Longer is you take time to read all the signs and stories. We enjoyed it and would recommend to come and check it out. PS - If... More

This museum was on par with (if not better than) many regional museums I've been to in Canada and the US. It's a good introduction to Manitoba for a visitor who's never been here before, but it's also informative and entertaining enough that locals would want to keep coming back. The galleries are intuitively laid out (you can't get lost),... More
