Oh round one, you sure did take our museum-loving hearts for a wild ride. We watched with anticipation as competing Must-see-ums fought for their life by rallying fans and supporters from across the province. The results are in:
In our Houses of History bracket, Dalnavert Museum rolled up in true Victorian fashion to secure its spot in our sweet sixteen, up against the strong and resilient spirit of the Wasyl Negrych Pioneer Homestead.
In the Industry and Manufacturing category, wildcard choice Pioneer Village Museum flexed its muscles and made it into our next round, preparing to take on the northern might of the Snow Lake Mining Museum.
Meanwhile, the Treherne Glass Bottle Buildings will attempt to claim the title of most eclectic museum in Manitoba against the fascinating (and very bizarre) Sam Waller Museum in the Cool & Quirky category.
There's not a moment to spare: the sweet sixteen round starts now!
