The museum portion covered everything from geology to fur trading history to present day industries. The crown jewel of this museum is the several stories in height Nonsuch tall ship. There is also a science centre and a planetarium for added extra fees.

Great museum for all ages. Lots of fun gallery's to go through. I didn't visit the Science Galley, but walked through part of it on my way to the Planetarium, and it seems like the kids there were enjoying themselves. :) The Planetarium was what you would expect one to be. I happened to be the only person at the... More

Excellent exhibits and variety. Exhibits are real and life like productions. Good for learning prairie history. Good for families. I have been there several times beginning when my children were young.

Great museum, excellent exhibits, even though some were blocked off for renovations. the kids loved the Nonsuch, especially with the engaging staff that encouraged questions.

There are a lot of different, interesting exhibits, including the science and history exhibits. I've always enjoyed going there because you can really never get tired of seeing everything again. Great for rainy days because kids won't get bored with all the hands-on exhibits.

This Museum has existed for a long time but the first diorama as you enter the museum space take my breath away every time. We do not go often as we do not live in the province but it still has an impact. Not much has changed over the years but you can take something new away from the visit... More

We were on our way to the zoo, but unfortunately or should I say fortunately Mother Nature had another idea. We changed our plans and headed to the Museum. There are many exhibits and it looks like many are still being set up. Last time I was there was over 12 years ago, and I must say. WOW! My three... More
