What is an Area?

Each area of the Manitoba Museum (Museum Galleries, Science Gallery, and Planetarium) is called an “area.” You can choose what area(s) you want to see; the more areas you visit the more you save!


Almost half of our operating budget is earned through admissions and donations. As a non-profit registered charity, the Manitoba Museum relies on admissions to fulfill its mandate of collecting, protecting, and researching across Manitoba and keep exhibitions in working order. Thank you for your support!
