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

We are members of the museum, and it is a great rainy or cold day stand by for us. My son adores Touch the Universe, but I wish the galleries had more interactive parts or reenactment staff to answer his infinite questions.

Fantastic dioramas and a wealth of historical background and information. A must see is the full scale replica of the fur trading ship, the Non Such. So very many interesting displays. Take the guided tour to get the most out of your visit.

Had best part of a day to kill in Winnipeg whilst waiting for our flight. Looked through trip-advisor for something to do and the museum was recommended, so, grabbed a taxi and went. Good decision, it is one of the best, if not the best, museum I've been to. Exceptionally we'll laid out, plenty of written information if you wanted... More
