Very representative of different areas of Manitoba and different periods of development in the province's history. The displays are interesting for children and the area that is interactive and hands on is great for kids.

Kids enjoy all the 4 parts . Planetarium, Science Gallery, Earth explorers, and Museum. Strongly recommend at least once. Museum and explorer some kids may not like but Science gallery and planetarium must visit.
