The heart of the Manitoba Museum is its extensive collection of over 2.8 million artifacts and specimens. Like most museums, we are only able to display a small fraction of our collections at any one time. Items not on display are carefully held in our dedicated climate-controlled facilities and require daily care.
Our behind-the-scenes tours provide you with an unparalleled experience. See for yourself where we keep artifacts and specimens, rarely seen by the public, and experience the working environment of our talented curators, collections and conservation staff.
This tour will explore our human history collections. Curators acquire research and preserve significant artifacts that tell the story of this province and its people. These collections reflect both the individual history of the object and to help to tell any number of stories of our collective past.
