While the Sun is setting outside, the excitement is rising at the Manitoba Museum! If you are looking for a fun and engaging evening experience for your group, consider the Museum’s Twilight Tours to check that box.
Twilight Tours are ideal for youth groups anywhere from ages 5 through 17, and packages can include all three areas of the Museum, including the Planetarium and Science Gallery. The highlight of the program is a chance to explore the Museum in the dark with a mysterious Flashlight Tour!
The evening starts off as participants arrive, get settled, and are separated into groups, usually by age. Groups are then sent off in a rotation to explore the Museum Galleries with a Scavenger Hunt, plus a choice of two or three of the following activities:
- Watch an out-of-this world Planetarium show (shows can be adjusted depending on ages)
- Get hands-on with a take-home Pottery activity
- Channel your inner scientist with the immersive exhibits in our Science Gallery
Then it’s time for an optional snack* break, before pulling out flashlights** to begin the Flashlight Tour of the Museum Galleries. By the end of the evening, participants will leave with unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime!
*Groups are responsible for bringing and serving any food or drink.
**Participants are responsible for their own flashlights.
Costs of the Twilight Tour program range from $22 to $34 per participant (including taxes), depending on the number of activities booked and the size of the group. Note: A minimum of 50 paid participants are needed to run a Twilight Tour program. One adult chaperone (18+) is admitted free for every six paid participants.
Twilight Tours can be booked online using our Twilight Tours Booking Request Form.
