Must sees the Living Seas video, every time I watch it i notice something new. the Nonsuch. The Nonsuch is an repilica of the 1600's ship... More

This museum is old but worthwhile. The attached planetarium is mouldy and disappointing. Sad really ,as when done well they can be lots of fun. Museum is older and needs refurbishment but is worthwhile and informative. Lots of information about indigenous peoples and the ecosystem. Hope they fix the water problem at the planetarium and the science museum so we... More

Didn't expect to see so much especially with reviews and AAA saying it would only take 1 hour minimum. We spent 3 full hours and still could have spent more time, if we could only have known that the Winnipeg Art Gallery was going to be a bust. Parking is in pay by the hour lot across the street or...

This is a great family outing. It's always changing lots to do for kids big or small. Not over priced and many different things to do. Could this place 3 to 6 a year and would always have a great time.

I have been to the museum many times and would recommend it to visitors. The upstairs museum area is very interesting and has lots of displays to keep your attention. There is a lower level with a science gallery for kids and the planetarium. The science gallery could use an update but is really fun, and it's worth seeing a... More

My family and I visited the Manitoba zoo on our recent trip to Winnipeg. I was especially moved by the Terry Fox exhibit. What a great story of determination and courage in the face of adversity. My little one enjoyed seeing the different exhibits, and it was pretty impressive to see the homage paid to the indigenous people of the... More

there are 3 parts to this museum, we only visited one as there are separate fees for each section . There is an interactive area which looks more geared towards younger children, I think the third was an astronomy centre, but we spent our time in the main museum which was promoting the history of Winnipeg and how it was...

We went yo the planetarium and it was fascinating. I would recommend that first over the rest of the museum. It is a bit tired and coukd do with some sprucing up. The area is not the nicest so best go in the middle of the dsy to avoid traffic by 4 pm.

So glad I got the chance to bring new family members to this place. If your looking for something to do in Winnipeg it sure is worth the money. Check... More

This museum was very interactive and comprehensive. It had a science gallery, a planetarium and then the actual exhibits. Plus, there was a special Terry Fox Gallery which we got to see as a bonus when we bought our tickets. The Science gallery was the most interactive section. It had tons of activities that could keep the kids busy for... More
