(Winnipeg, MB August 13, 2018): Remember how excited you were to go on a field trip as a kid? And then, as an adult, being the chaperone standing back as the kids got to have all the fun? The Manitoba Museum has recreated the field trip experience, with a one-night-only After Hours: Grown-Up Field Trip on September 20 from 7 pm to 11 pm!
Fueled by adult beverages and free pizza, Field Trippers will participate in programs and activities to earn gold stars to see if they can make the grade. Collect enough gold stars and Field Trippers can enter a draw to win some amazing prizes, including tasty treats from Bronuts.
This Field Trip is a chance for adults to learn and participate in hands-on activities throughout the Museum Galleries, the Science Gallery, and the Planetarium: after all – why should kids have all the fun?
Participants will enjoy taking part in activities usually reserved for school-aged students such as:
- mummifying carrots,
- carving soapstone,
- watching science demonstrations,
- trying to save Lake Winnipeg,
- and soaring through space at Planetarium shows.
Field Trippers can also celebrate their awkward phase in our photo booth, or become a star athlete in our Hockey: The Stories Behind Our Passion exhibition. Best of all, no student supervision required!
Tickets can be purchased online at ManitobaMuseum.ca/buy-tickets and at the Museum box office.
- $25 for General Admission
- $20 for Members

- $15 each for groups of 5 or more Teachers using the promo code “teamspirit,” because they really do deserve a break.
