The Museum’s collections reflect the heritage of Manitoba and other regions of the world. Our nine interpretive galleries explore the interrelationship of people and their environment. Travel through millions of years as you journey from north to south across Manitoba’s vast and varied landscape, from the icy arctic coast to the windswept prairies.
The Museum is noted for its three-dimensional walk-through galleries. Highlights include the Nonsuch, a full-size 17th-century sailing vessel, and the Urban Gallery, which takes you back in time to Winnipeg during the 1920s.
The Planetarium features interactive multimedia shows that recreate the current night sky, explore various hot topics in astronomy, and highlight the latest space discoveries. From imaginative children’s shows to more sophisticated fare, the Planetarium shares the wonders of the universe with visitors of all ages.
Touch the universe with more than 100 entertaining hands-on exhibits in the Science Gallery. Push the limits of your imagination, put your senses to the test and explore science, technology and the world around you in an exciting, high-energy environment.
The Manitoba Museum is the recipient of many recent awards and designations, including the Michelin Green Guide top rating “Worth the Trip”, the Province of Manitoba’s Tourism Service Excellence Award, the Attractions Canada Prix Award (provincial) for indoor attractions, and the Canadian Tourism Commission’s “Win with Winter in Canada” Award for the “Great Canadian Fur Trade” behind-the-scenes tour.

Reviews of The Manitoba Museum
One of the most affordable family activities around. With a family pass costing just over 100 for the year and providing access to the musuem, planetarium and science musuem!
The Manitoba Museum was one of my favourite places to go as a child. Whether I was there on a field trip, or with my family and friends it never disappointed. If you are planning on on visiting the museum make sure to check out the Planetarium and the fully restored sailboat.
