  • Haven't been in a while but I was very excited to see lots of new exhibits a little sad about how much the science gallery has changed but it still had fun things to do. The planetarium had a wonderful show on I'm not super into space travel and that sort of stuff other than star gazing but they keep it interesting and full of new information. Would definetly return soon
  • Really just an awesome place to go learn all kinds of things about Canadian and Manitoban history. There are tons of shows each week in the planetarium and the kids science area is amazing for both adults and children alike. We had my brother's birthday there and it was an awesome experience. The staff was great and the kids had so much fun.
  • I've been to museums all around the world and I love this one! So many interesting and well done exhibits to go though. There are dinosaurs, attic life, information on the environment and human evolution and of course the ship you get to go explore inside the galleries! There are traveling exhibits that often visit to add even more variety. The exhibits are well maintained and immersive. The information on exhibits is easy to find and understand. Great for kids and curious adults! You will learn about Manitoba and have a fun time doing it.
  • My daughter loves this place, and nothing beats for a parent to see their child enjoying and having so much fun. The staff in the microscope area are very friendly and great for kids learning.
  • Love to go there with my sister, she is really into history and always asking people in museum lots of questions. Very friendly and knowledgable staff.

Where to stay in Winnipeg

For easy access to entertainment, look north of Downtown to the hip Exchange District--here you'll find some of the city's most pleasant historical architecture, as well as its most happening bar scene. If you want to mingle with the city's hipsters, stay in the leafy riverfront suburb of Wolseley, where organic markets and "fair trade" cafes abound. If you're just planning to visit Winnipeg for a night or two, you can find a range of accommodations close to the airport.
