A Message to Our Members.

Valued Manitoba Museum Members,

As you know, the Manitoba Museum temporarily closed our doors on March 14 due to COVID-19. While we are not able to re-open immediately, we are preparing to meet the requirements to safely welcome our members back to their beloved Museum. We’ll let you know as soon as we determine when we’ll be opening again!


Since you’ve been unable to visit the Museum and we know you’ll want to once we re-open, we’re extending your membership by the length of time that our closure overlaps with your membership term.


We know your next visit to the Museum will be a meaningful one and we’re excited for the day when we’re able to welcome you back! Until then remember you can engage with us online, subscribe to updates on social media, and enjoy our virtual Museum experiences through our weekly newsletter, ManitobaMuseum@Home.


Many people have asked how they can support us during this challenging time. Waiving the membership extension we are offering is one way. Donations are another. We would be very grateful for either – or both. Please contact us at membership@manitobamuseum.ca or leave a voicemail at 204-988-0647 and we will get back to you as soon as possible.


We are thankful for each of our members and for the on-going support you are providing the Manitoba Museum!


Kaitlin Aiello, Membership Coordinator & Lauren Baker, Manager of Visitor & Member Services
