What can I all do at the Museum?
In addition to Animal Inside Out, we offer three areas, or venues, that ensure a varied and exciting experience for all:
- Learn the human and natural history of Manitoba as your journey through nine immersive Museum Galleries. Your museum experience includes a gallery intervention, Strike 1919: Divided City, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Winnipeg General Strike.
- Be inspired by the universe at the Planetarium – select from a variety of shows, including the summer feature CapCom Go! The Apollo Story.
- The young, or simply the young at heart, will enjoy hands on fun with LEGO, build and race your own car, and much more in the Science Gallery.
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.
