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!

I have been visiting this museum for over 40 years on a yearly basis. There are exhibits that are very dated, however I always find some new things to delight in every year. My favorite is the town site and the clipper ship that one can take a tour of. I arrived when the museum opened for the day and... More

Small and dated exhibits. Planetarium is really old and seats are not comfortable. Whole place is really due for a renovation. Can skip this place if you have other places to go. There are much more advanced and newer planetariums in other places.

The science museum sits on the bottom floor of the Manitoba Museum and is a separate entrance fee. The time we were there a school had just left, so my daughter had the whole place to herself. The museum is not that big, but there are a lot of interesting things to do. Even a 14-year-old found it interesting! So,... More

The sky comes alive in the planetarium shows, and the kids and the kid in you has a blast in the science gallery. Well worth the visit!

Both the Science Gallery and Planetarium are located downstairs in the Manitoba Museum. I had an All-Experience Pass with unlimited admission for 90 days. On a Saturday I toured through the Science Gallery, which featured a variety of physics and ecology-related hands-on, interactive stations to learn about climate, cars and space. If you have kids or friends with kids looking... More

This is a great Family friendly facility with many "hands on" activities for both young and old. The Planetarium is awesome.
