|Winnipeg, MB (December 14, 2020): The Manitoba Museum will be delivering free virtual events directly into the homes of Manitobans. [email protected], sponsored by Travel Manitoba, will provide free virtual programs for everyone to enjoy from home during the holiday season. Manitoba Museum virtual experiences will run from December 19 to January 10.
Little Narwhal’s Adventure will be great for the whole family, especially the little ones, and Planetarium programs will take all space enthusiasts into the night sky. On New Year’s Eve, a tour of the 17th-century ship, Nonsuch will include a visit to the rarely-seen cargo hold. This will bring back memories for anyone who has ever visited the Museum and amaze those who have never seen it before. Virtual exploration of other amazing galleries will delight viewers and hint at what lies in store when the Museum safely reopens.
The Manitoba Museum will also be offering a watch-on-demand tour of the galleries and a virtual scavenger hunt. Explorers can complete and submit online for a chance to win a free Family Membership. All virtual experiences can be enjoyed on the Museum’s YouTube channel 24 hours after the live event.
Details for all the [email protected] programs are available on the Museum website. Registration to participate on Zoom is required; however, anyone can join in live via Facebook.
