sO MUCH INFO TO TAKE IN

So much to see and so little time to take it all in, from the tall ships to the eskimo culture it was all breathtaking -- definitely a must see when in Winnipeg

There's something really cool about the Manitoba Planetarium. Their general show about star gazing and constellations is great, but also see if there's a special show on. Great place for families, birthday parties and out of town visitors, especially when combined with the science gallery. Kids 6 and older would probably get the most enjoyment out of these places, and... More

Great family place. Science gallery can be interesting. Shows fairly interesting. School and Daycare can make for a busy, noisy but fun visit.

The Planetarium is lovely and we enjoyed the star gazing at the beginning pointing out constellations and galaxies, but the actual showe Back to the Moon was basically a commercial for the Google Lunar Prize. A bit interesting info but mostly felt like an infomercial.

I found the planetarium as something I had to visit while in Winnipeg! I am happy to report that it was not a wasted trip! It was easy to locate, clean exterior and interior, and not overly expensive. At only nine dollars a person per show I found it quite affordable and worth the money. If you see more than... More

Its nice to go here once in a while but its a little on the pricy side. And if you end up going during a school or daycare visit, prepare for craziness as the place isn't very big. Also watch for the creepy homeless people who sneak inside and sit down stairs.

The program "Discovering the Universe" was excellent. I hadn't been to the planetarium in 25 years and with the new digital photography the presentation was excellent. The bad thing is the place needs to be renovated. The seats are worn out, hard and not comfortable...same ones that were there when I was last there. The whole place needs a good... More
