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

This museum is wonderful, but to enjoy it, dedicate at least a few hours. It has hands on as well as reading content. Wonderful full-sized boat available inside for tour. Great display on the history of the Hudson Bay Company also. Some beautiful First Nations artifacts that really display the talents of these artists. This museum covers a wide spectrum... More

I have been going to this museum since I was small. One thing it has going for it is the collections of local history. Yes, some of the exhibits could use some updating (and dusting), but I was pleasantly surprised at some of the newer installations. Far more artifacts from indigenous people and Metis people as well as the stories... More

The Manitoba Museum, formerly known as the Manitoba Museum of Man and Nature dating back to 1967, has been a Winnipeg fixture for decades. It has a number of dedicated galleries that recount from prehistoric time to the present, the vast changes that have occurred in the province. The museum is part of a larger complex that includes a Planetarium,... More

The Manitoba Museum is a great choice for a little education and entertainment while visiting Winnipeg. There are three areas that you may purchase access to for the day but as a family of 3 we found most of our time was spent perusing the main museum galleries. We took in a show in the planetarium, which I would highly... More

The musuem was a bit pricey I thought, if it had been cheaper than I would have rated it higher- my 4 year old had to pay and was interested only for a few minutes. It did have some cool things. The kids liked the fossils, the animal displays, the cave, the frog scavenger hunt. We all thought the boat... More

I have an annual pass which I have maintained for 4 years. I find this to be an inexpensive way to always have a go to place when the kids need to be entertained on a rainy day. There are enough special events at the museum during the year to keep things interesting. An annual membership is great value for... More
