The Manitoba Museum
Set sail on a thrilling voyage of excitement and discovery at The Manitoba Museum. Only here can you travel through time to the roaring 20’s, explore a 17th century ship and view treasures from around the world.
There is always something new to experience. An ever-changing variety of touring and specialty exhibits are a fantastic compliment to our nine permanent galleries. One of the newest additions is Ancient Seas, a completely immersive, animated underwater environment that takes you back 450 million years to a tropical sea that once existed where Churchill is today. Our Discovery Room is updated every six months with treasures from our vaults. Be sure to visit our newly refurbished Earth History Gallery and discover why one of our curators is in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The Manitoba Museum is the recipient of the Michelin Green Guide top award, a designation of Worth the Trip; the Province of Manitoba Tourism Service Excellence Award; the Attractions Canada Prix Award (provincial) for indoor attractions; the Canadian Tourism Commission Win with Winter in Canada Award; the Spirit of Winnipeg Award, presented by the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce for innovation in not-for-profit organizations, and the Travel Manitoba Marketing Excellence Award for "Dinosaurs Unearthed".
Planetarium and Science Gallery:
One of only five major planetariums in the country, featuring new Digistar technology and live multimedia shows that recreate the current night sky, highlighting the latest space discoveries and following the developments of the space program.
The renovated Science Gallery now includes "Engineered for Speed" where visitors design and build their own remote-controlled race cars and test them on our giant race track, a water area with a self-sustained ecosystem and an Explore Science Zone with multiple hands-on activities. Opening on March 20 is Lake Winnipeg: Shared Solutions - an interactive exhibit that at its heart is a high-tech simulator called The Watershed of the Future.
Open year-round. Closed Mondays in winter. Admission charged.
