Join us Saturday, April 20 & Sunday, April 21 for Earth Days @ the Manitoba Museum as we explore ways we can work together to combat climate change with special programming in the Museum Galleries, Planetarium, and Science Gallery.

Discover different animals, their habitats and their vital roles in nature with a scavenger hunt through the Museum Galleries; get into the conservation game with a fun and educational board game where you’ll learn about the impact of plastics on our planet; and don’t forget to visit the Planetarium, where you’ll marvel at how satellites monitor the Earth’s changing climate. Let’s learn how to keep our planet healthy together.

As you celebrate Earth Day with us, consider our relationship to the Earth and how our everyday actions shape the world we live in. At the end of your Earth Days self-guided tour, pause and reflect at our Earth Day Reflection Wall and ask yourself: 

What action will I take to keep our environment healthy? How do I want to see the future unfold? 

 

 

Planetarium 

We are Guardians
11:00 am & 1:30 pm 

Show poster: Picture looking out over an expanse of water, with lines forming the globe of the Earth in the sky on a fuchsia background. Text across the globe reads, "We Are Guardians". Text below reads, “How satellites help us to save the planet”. The National Space Centre and NSC Creative logos are in the bottom corners.

We Are Guardians is a highly immersive, leading-edge look at the role of satellites in orbit around Earth – how they monitor the effects of a changing climate, and how the information they provide will be crucial in our fight to reduce harmful emissions.  

This program communicates the serious issue of climate change in a way that is more accessible to children. It is rated for ages 5 and up.

 

Atlas of a Changing Earth
12:15 pm & 3:00 pm 

Show poster: View of the Earth from space. The title is overlaid on top, "Atlas of a Changing Earth".

Using stunning, latest-generation imagery from space, Atlas of a Changing Earth takes viewers into the dynamic processes causing coastal glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica to melt and explores how rising seas could threaten coastlines the world over.
