I've seen some great museums in my day and this one ranks right up there. Really enjoyed the displays (Buffalo hunt, First Nations life) and the great connections to Metis history. The Hudson Bay ship and yard is totally breathtaking, that alone worth the price of admission. We only had two hours to get through the First part of the... More

I loved visiting the museum with their life sized exhibitions of a bison hunt and much more. You can spend hours upon hours leaning in that place.

This museum is really interesting and is worthwhile for adults and kids. Their displays are well thought out, plenty of information. I am not normally a fan of museums but this one was very enjoyable.

We toured the facility after buying the 3 attraction ticket. Those were the museum exhibits, Science area and planetarium. The your through the museum was confusing even though footprints supposedly led the way. too many turns and dark areas got us lost. I kno they want dim lighting for exhibits but signage was not readable in many areas. The place... More

If you have children, I highly recommend this place. It is very nice place. But if you are looking for the best museum, then go to Washington DC and visit Smithsonian Museums.

I have been to museums in 4 other countries, sometimes flagship museums and none come close to the storytelling aspects of this museum. I wish that they would update some of their galleries more often though as I go whenever I'm in Wpg but I have seen the same thing a few times now.

This musuem was well worth the time on a rainy day and even on a sunny day would be enjoyable. It is a bit pricey so I would skip the science section and just do the history and, maybe, planetarium. The history area took you from the beginning of earth history to the 20th Century for this region and highlighted... More

The very important exhibits, the H.B.C. Nonsuch replica ship. The HBC archives, and more. It was in the Planetarium that I was employed from when it opened. There is a science gallery as part of this exhibit. Live shows are given as well as some recorded shows. It has changed a lot since I work here but the staff does... More
