Human and Natural History Collections

Human History curators and staff are committed to increasing awareness and appreciation of Manitoba’s heritage through the acquisition and preservation of artifacts. This collection of artifacts is used for research, gallery and exhibit development, public programming, and as educational teaching aids.

Natural History collections are developed and maintained as a specimen library of plants, animals, fossils, rocks, and minerals for the province. Specimens are used for reference and research, in public and school programs, and in exhibitions. Specimens are stored in secure, climate-controlled conditions. As the provincial repository, a large portion of the Museum’s collections is Manitoba material, but there are also many significant specimens from other parts of the world.
