Stories and creativity on display

If you want a deep dive into Manitoba’s history, visit a museum – we have over 200 of them! Indigenous, and Francophone experiences are central to Manitoba’s story and resilient Manitobans are renowned for creating amazing art and dazzling, high quality performances. Discover who Manitobans really are when you experience our arts, culture and history.

Manitoba's arts & culture experiences are found throughout the province on Treaty 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Territory and in communities who are signatories to Treaties 6 and 10. Manitoba encompasses the original lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anish-Ininiwak, Dakota, Dene, Ininiwak and Nehethowuk and the homeland of the Métis.
