Join us for a rare look at the Nonsuch cargo hold while experiencing the sights, sounds, and stories of our Nonsuch Gallery. During the tour, our guide will take you through the mysterious cargo hold of the 17th-century replica ship where you will see first-hand what her voyages might have been like. Learn about the inner workings of the ship, see bunks used by the crew, and discover stories of trade that established the Hudson’s Bay Company and their trade with the Omushkegowak. 

*Entry to hold tours is free with paid admission to the Museum Galleries. Tours are first come, first served. The lineup will be cut off at 4:00 pm to make sure those waiting will have their turn before we close at 5:00 pm. There will be no hold tours on the January 5 First Friday evening event.

Cool-as-ice demonstrations: Fun with Static and Ice!
20-minute demos, daily at 11:15 am, 1:45 pm, and 3:00 pm

A grinning person wearing a white lab coat and a blue and white staticky mullet wig. Their left hand is on a metal sphere (Van Der Graaff generator), while their right hand is held out, palm up, as three metal tart tins fly up from it.What better way to celebrate the Winter Break than with jaw-dropping experiments about two common elements of the season: static electricity and freezing temperatures. 

Ever wonder why you get a ZAAAP when you walk across the carpet, or take off a sweater in the winter? It’s SCIENCE! And we’ll show you why it happens in ways guaranteed to shock you! And if you think it’s cold outside, we’ve got something even colder… liquid nitrogen. You’ll get chills as we freeze objects faster and colder than your nose on a frosty Manitoba night! 

Free with any paid admission to any venue. Seating is limited, and first-come, first-served.
