Before You Visit

  • Self-Screening & COVID-19 Symptoms – Visitors are asked to self-screen using the Manitoba Health COVID-19 Screening Tool. Please do not visit the Manitoba Museum if you or anyone in your household are:
    • Exhibiting any new or worsening COVID-19 symptoms,
    • Have been in close contact with someone in the last 14 days that is confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19,
    • Have traveled outside of Manitoba in the last 14 days and are not fully vaccinated, or
    • Are required to self-isolate for any reason under the current public health orders.
  • Pre-Purchase Tickets – Visitors are strongly encouraged to purchase tickets online before their visit to minimize wait times and reduce contact with other people.

During Your Visit

  • Entrance/Exit – Visitors may enter the Museum through the main entrance at 190 Rupert Avenue, from the Main Street entrance, from the Centennial Concert Hall Parkade, or from the lower-level Concourse Hallway.
  • Face Masks – All staff members and visitors (ages 5+) are required to wear a face mask that covers their mouth, nose, and chin without gapping while in the public areas of the Manitoba Museum. Face masks are available for visitors at the Box Office. Exemptions include:
    • Children under 5 years of age,
    • Any person with an underlying medical condition, that is unrelated to COVID-19, including breathing or cognitive difficulties or a disability which prevents them from safely wearing a mask or covering,

    • Planetarium Theatre – Entry into the Planetarium is based on timed-ticketing and requires all visitors to reserve their show time due to reduce seating. Re-entry into the Planetarium Theatre will not be allowed due to safety concerns.
