(Winnipeg, MB, August 4, 2020): Starting August 6, the Museum Galleries will be open for discovery and exploration Thursdays to Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm.
“We know that Manitobans, and those visiting our province, are looking for safe and meaningful experiences this summer,” says Executive Director and CEO Claudette Leclerc. “An immersive exploration of this province’s history and nature at the Manitoba Museum offers just that.”
Museum staff are making every effort to protect visitors, staff, and the Museum’s collections of artifacts and specimens by adhering to public health measures and the guidelines for restoring services. Increased cleaning and sanitization practices have been implemented and hand sanitizer stations are available.
Visitors enter and exit through the one entrance at 190 Rupert Avenue. Everyone is asked to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms before arriving at the Museum.
To limit contact, visitors are asked to consider using touchless payment or to purchase tickets online and to download a digital Visitor Map to guide their Museum exploration. Physical distancing is encouraged with floor markers and signage. High-touch and interactive exhibit elements in the Museum Galleries are not accessible. Visitors will not be able to board the 17th-century replica ship, Nonsuch, as she is an artifact that requires special care and sanitizing efforts would damage her.
