    The children had a great time. The museum was well maintained and an excellent educational experience for the whole family. Honesty it's a five star experience but the cost drove it down a single star...  more »

    This museum is excellent because it is truly all about Manitoba from its animals to its people, from north to south from, and from past to near present. A beautiful summary !  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.

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.
