Plan My Visit

There is always something new to discover at the Manitoba Museum. With three exciting venues plus a temporary exhibit hall, each and every visit can be a new adventure.

The Museum features nine permanent galleries that tell the story of Manitoba. Our Planetarium offers a variety of shows for all ages, while the Science Gallery makes learning fun with tons of interactive, hands-on exhibits and activities.

From new permanent exhibits to temporary traveling exhibitions to our ever-changing Planetarium shows, you have a great number of options readily available.

We look forward to seeing you soon!


The Manitoba Museum is located at 190 Rupert Avenue (Rupert @ Main Street), across from City Hall and adjacent to the Centennial Concert Hall. The Manitoba Museum does not own or operate any of the lots in the vicinity.

Right by our front doors, there is a pick-up and drop-off area, so you can let your family and friends get the admissions tickets while you park.

There are several parking options available:

  • On Rupert and Alexander Avenues, there are surface lots with some casual parking available. The Alexander Avenue lot has a coin-only dispensing machine, so plan to bring quarters and dollar coins with you. There are also two surface lot on Lily Street with casual stalls available.
  • In terms of large, multi-level parking, the available options are The Winnipeg Health Regional Authority Parkade (Main @ Logan) and the Rorie Street Parkade, located at 170 McDermot Avenue.
  • On Rupert Avenue and surrounding streets, there is metered parking available for up to 2 hours.
  • On Waterfront drive, between MacDonald Avenue (close to Higgins Avenue) and Alexander Avenue, there is metered street parking where you can park your car for up to 4 hours. If you are planning on a longer visit, this may be the most efficient place to park.
  • The Winnipeg Parking Authority provides 2 hours of free on-street parking on Saturdays and on-street parking is free on Sundays.
  • The Canada Games Sport For Life Centre has an indoor parkade available for public use.  For more info, click here.
