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

The science museum is fairly small but has good interactive exhibits for all ages. It's mostly hands on activities. The planetarium was cool but pretty short for the price. A great way for a family to spend an afternoon.

Planetarium show began with a nice intro of the night sky and constellations. Then saw Wonders of the Universe. Good too but definitely for newcomers or amateurs. Not much beyond basic info. The Science Gallery is for kids so did not go. Looked like a small room.

We always feel like we don't have enough time to do everything as the kids bounce between every activity. They love the planetarium and so do we. They are always engaged in every activity!
