I found the museum to be a place of contrast. First off, you go through some rather old, poorly done, and confusing exhibits, with a jumble of artefacts from all over the world. Then, you get to a section where you are expecting dinosaurs, and what you get are some pictures of sea creatures and a couple of giant mammal... More

Excellent museum to learn about all aspects of the history of this region including really good exhibits about the history and influence of the Hudson's Bay Company. A real treat was the opportunity to explore the replica of the sailing ship Nonsuch.

We took in the entire building. This included the science areas and the planetarium. The new show in the planetarium is great. The kids still enjoy the museum and getting to board the ship Nonsuch. A family would really need at least 3 to 4hours to do all 3 venues properly.

We only had a couple of hours to spend at the Museum. It was very well presented and most interesting. We loved getting aboard the old ship and imagining what it must have been like to travel a long distance on such a boat. I would highly recommend this museum.

The Manitoba museum is a wonderful attraction for young and old alike. We took our grandchildren, the youngest being just 3 years old and he loved the visit as much as we did. The displays, the information and the variety are all done well. Some favorite attractions were the ship, the old town and of course the tepee. There is... More

This museum gives an excellent presentation of the history, wildlife, and civilization of Manitoba. The exhibits are fine -- beautifully shown and the wall labels are excellent in their descriptions and explanations. In one room, there is an exact replica of the Nonesuch ship that brought Europeans to Manitoba. There are 2 drawbacks that make me give this museum a... More

This an absolutely fabulous museum in a very extraordinary and unique architectural setting. Take the time to wonder through the entire museum and following the journey of the struggle for human rights through various cultures and times. Truly enjoyed this learning experience. I would recommend this Adults and teens but not young children. Once through the exhibits, take the stairs... More

I have been here several times, my husband and youngest grandson, had not. My husband who is from Chicago, thought it was excellent. The little guy said it was cool. The 12 year-old and I, really enjoyed it. We did not go to the Planetarium. The Science Gallery on the lower level, is hands on and great fun for kids... More

Love this place since I was a kid. I get to go every year on field trips with my class. There is always something new to see or a theme. The science Center was so much fun for all ages. The theme was Pirates this year. Love walking through the museum and seeing all the history. Must sees are everything... More

The museum has not been updated in many years. Focuses mainly on local history. I would not recommend going.
