Step into the completely renewed Welcome Gallery. See a Métis hunter on horseback as he closes in on a herd of wild-eyed bison, dramatically introducing the philosophical theme of the Museum: the interrelationship of human beings and the natural environment.
Examine a brand new exhibit of treaty medals, pipes, and exquisitely beaded pipe bags, that acknowledge the promises made in Treaties, and demonstrates the Museum’s commitment to active engagement with Indigenous communities.
Explore the new, animated map detailing Manitoba’s landscapes, and showing the dramatic changes of the last 18,000 years.
Discover a display case of iconic artifacts and specimens representing the Museum’s eight galleries. This case offers a preview of the visitor’s journey in the Museum, through time, and from Manitoba’s north to south.
