“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

So many galleries! So much history! The science gallery below is a must for children. A great way to spend 3-5 hours of your day. A little pricey for a family outing.

“Kids fun day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Loved the museum but needs more interaction! Kids loved the boat because you could actually board it. And the Old day town was cool to walk threw and visit the way things used to be!! Could use some updates though :)

“Great museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

I may be slightly biased, as its my home town, but I love the museum. Make sure you plan for a couple of hours though, it's deceptively large with lots to see! If you're travelling to Churchill, this is a must see before you go - the exhibits are wonderful and truly give a great view to the amazing province of Manitoba.

“Interesting visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Has museum and planetarium. Both are well done. Good displays and there is a replica of 300 year old ship "Nonsuch" displayed in an authentic-looking environment.

“Time well spent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

I really enjoyed this museum.

Comprehensive and something for everyone - including the kids.

You have a choice of three attractions, including the planetarium. I only chose the museum part and it was plenty. Would have to come back for the rest, and would be happy to do so.

Great exhibits, engaging, well priced.

I much preferred this to the Winnipeg Art Gallery, which was more expensive, significantly smaller and far less exhibits.
