  • This museum has a significant number of exhibits and all are well done. Allow a minimum of three hours if you walk through the exhibition areas quickly.  more »

  • Nice clean museum! Saw The moving dinosaur exhibit, nice to see good for kids but I think that it could have been bigger for adults. The museum itself is big especially if you look at all the exhibits and read the signs. A person could easily spend all day here, or a good portion of one.
  • We had a pretty good time. Only complaint is the price . If you are low Income and or have a big family. $20+ a person is way too much. I think the museum should consider family pass prices .
  • Enjoyed coming here as a kid and now enjoy bringing my own kids every time we visit Winnipeg. Highly recommend for kids of all ages. The science gallery is always a great way to spend half a day.
  • Absolutely wonderful place to be at. Very educational, great people, guides are awesome. I've went there quite a few times before, especially when I was young. It feels like everything in there is so accurate and authentic.
  • Great place to take kids for an hour or two. Lots to see and the science area has some hand on stuff for kids. Prices are a touch high, but understandable to keep things operating. New special exhibits arrive occasionally. My only complaint is sometimes lots of the hands on items in the science labs are broken. The area can be a bit sketchy, but no fault of the museum on that part. Overall, lots of fun for the kids, and there is often a thing or two the adults can learn too.
