There is a lot to this museum! We spent the entire day here with a break for lunch at Clementine's and for the planetarium show (weekends only), and we still didn't have enough time. The building seems manageable from the outside, but there is room after room of exhibits, information to read, and even a film on the history of Winnipeg at the end. If you like museums, plan to be here when it opens and spend the day.

The Manitoba Museum was a five-star experience! We came close to closing so the museum was relatively quiet. We would recommend around 2 hours to fully explore all the museum has to offer. The displays were educational, entertaining, and excellent. Would 100 percent recommend coming and experiencing this wonderful place.

I loved this place, especially the ship area. The ship reminded my of my childhood movie the goonies but the real attraction was going around the ship for the recreated docks and town. The room afterward with indigenous clothing and tools. There’s tons more.

My adult son from Winnipeg and I (Ottawa) spent a couple of hours at the Manitoba Museum on a Wednesday. While weaving among a number of young students on field trips, we learned a lot about the ecology and wildlife of northern Manitoba.
We highly recommend taking the time to listen to the NonSuch Story as told by Louis Bird.
If we had known more about the Winnipeg City exhibit, we’d have spent more time there. We could have spent another hour learning!

I love seeing the old town and the old ship. The museum has dinosaurs and other interesting things to see and learn about. It is good for everyone not just for children.

I have gone to the Museum and I quite enjoyed it.
I also had the chance to attend to a couple of events organized there and it surprised me what a cool venue it was

Good museum with a real boat that the kids can explore. Could use some more interactive displays but fun overall!

Great place for older kids. They sometimes have volunteers that offer more activities for toddlers but they are often not available. We let our membership expire because there just wasn't enough there for toddlers. When our child is older we will look at membership again. Go on a Sunday when you don't have to pay crazy rates for parking if you can find a spot on the street

No matter how many times you have been to the museum you will see & learn new things The displays are so detailed & well done. You feel like you are there in each era. The Strike display was incredible. The history learned in that display is shocking, sad, & eye opening. The museum staff puts in an incredible effort to make the displays & the experience come alive for you. Go see it. It’s never the same.
