Loved the Nonsuch ship and the gentleman on board who had so much interesting info to tell us; loved the old-fashioned village and you can't go wrong with getting to sit down and watch a Charlie Chaplin silent film in an old theatre; and we loved the new parklands/mixed woods gallery. This museum is chock full and you need a... More

everything. It is one of the best I have seen. It takes a few hour to see all the exhibits. It is handicap friendly and there are strollers. I also volunteered there with school programs and the kids really liked it

Even though this site is located in a rough part of the City, it is well worth the effort and admission. There is something to see for every age group. As well, it houses one of the best Planetariums that our family has seen.

Beautiful diaramas of the prairies with buffaloes,teepees. The Nunsuch boat shows how crowded it was to travel by ship in the early days. There is so much to see.

If you have any interest at all in the history of Canada or the socio-geographic impacts on settlement (and native displacement) then you have ot visit. A bit of a Hudson's Bay slant to presentations, but they are the major contributor to the museum. As well, there is an excellent "snapshot" display of early Winnipeg as a city in that... More

The Manitoba Museum has stationary galleries and also presents special exhibitions. You can enjoy and 1900's town and walk through the shops and see how people lived in the west. You can visit dinosaurs which tower over visitors. There is also the Nonsuch ship that you can visit after walking the plank! There's an excellent gift shop as well.

When I was five I visited this museum for the first time during a school field trip. When I saw the Boreal Forest exhibit I just knew inside that was when I needed to be - living in Northern Canada. This attraction affected my life so greatly, although it may have taken some time, I have just moved to the... More

The Manitoba Museum is exactly as I remembered it as a young person. The exhibits have changed little over the years to the point where the museum has a retro feel to it. Some of the exhibits are reading heavy so young children may lose interest. One nice part of the museum is that it isn't so delicate that you... More

Definitely a prairie flavour, learn about Manitoba history. Great little village recreated. The children's discovery centre is very entertaining. Don't miss the Nonsuch, a real ship in the building.

Just as I remembered, this museum is a treat and worth going back to. As with most museums, there's more to see than time, but make sure you take the time to take it the interactive Science exhibit, and see the fundamental pieces that make this planet. A fascinating trip and great for people of all ages!
