Statement of Commitment
The Manitoba Museum is dedicated to ensuring equal access and participation for all. We advocate for inclusion and strive to treat every individual in a manner that upholds their dignity and independence. Our commitment extends to addressing the accessibility challenges faced by various individuals. We pledge to identify, eliminate, and prevent barriers, aligning with the stipulations of The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA).
While we are dedicated to removing barriers, we acknowledge that our current museum setup may not cater to all needs. If you have specific requirements, please contact our team directly at 204-956-2830 ext. 0, or by email at Info@ManitobaMuseum.ca.
Disclaimer: The Manitoba Museum opened its doors in 1970 and understands that many parts of the Museum are due for renewal. We appreciate your patience as the Museum continues to address outdated infrastructure.
Have a question or comment? We value your feedback. Please get in touch with us by phone at 204-956-2830 ext. 0, or by email at Info@ManitobaMuseum.ca.
Rupert Avenue (Entrance Open) – Main entrance to the Manitoba Museum and includes a ramp and stairs to the Museum lobby.
Main Street (Entrance Open) – Secondary entrance with stairs. It is not wheelchair accessible.
Lily Street (Entrance Open) – Secondary entrance with a fully accessible entrance including a series of ramps and a small lift to get you to the Planetarium and Science Gallery level (Concourse Hallway). The main floor galleries can then be accessed using the tower elevator.
We regret that there are no accessible parking spots in front of the Manitoba Museum or in Rupert Avenue lot across from the main Museum entrance. This is an accessibility issue that we are actively working on resolving. Please note that the Museum does not own or operate any of the lots in the vicinity and public parking availability may vary. There is a loading zone beside the main Museum entrance on Rupert Avenue where visitors can be dropped off or picked up.
The main floor and lower Concourse level are connected by an elevator in the Museum lobby. A small lift connects the Lily Street entrance to the Concourse level. An elevator in the Hudson’s Bay Company Gallery brings visitors up to the Nautical Balcony for a unique view of the Nonsuch.
Wheelchairs & Strollers
The Manitoba Museum is wheelchair and stroller accessible. There is a ramp at the Rupert Street primary entrance, and at the Lily Street secondary entrance, with an elevator connecting the Galleries on the main floor to the Science Gallery and Planetarium on the Concourse level.
Wheelchairs are available to borrow from our Box Office on a first-come, first-served basis. Photo ID or credit card is required. Strollers are available in the Museum Foyer on a first-come-first-served basis. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own stroller or wheelchair.
There are gender-neutral washrooms in the Museum Foyer and in the Museum Galleries near the Nonsuch Gallery, each with a large, accessible, barrier‐free stall. There is a single-room Family washroom in the Concourse Cloakroom. All of our public washrooms include baby change tables.
The Manitoba Museum offers free admission to people accompanying a person with a disability (up to two support persons per visitor). This applies to general admission for Museum Galleries, Planetarium and/or Science Gallery. Please notify Box Office staff upon your arrival if you are a support person, as an admission ticket is required.
