PLANETARIUM SHOWS
Daily

11:30 am: Legends of the Northern Sky
12:45 pm: Magic Globe
2:00 pm: Legends of the Northern Sky
3:15 pm: Magic Globe
4:15 pm:  Legends of the Northern Sky

 

Our new Planetarium show, Legends of the Northern Sky, premiers on March 26. Embark on a journey with the Indigenous peoples of the western plains of Canada and share in their wisdom conveyed by the stars.

Alongside Ocek, the fisher, and his band of animal friends, audiences take a dangerous expedition south to retrieve summer and return it to the frozen north. To the Plains Cree, Ocek was forever running across the night sky, ensuring the arrival of summer after the cold, perilous winter.

Learn how the great bully, the giant bear Mista Maskwa, was finally tamed by a brave band of birds. This adventure is mapped in the stars as the birds chase Mista Maskwa every night, keeping us safe from his foul temperament.

The Indigenous people of North America connected with the night sky in fundamental ways that resonated with their world. In Legends of the Northern Sky, we learn and appreciate their stories in the stars and in turn, learn a little bit more about the spirit that connects us all.

 

Legends of the Northern Sky is generously supported by Travel Manitoba.
