We had a nice morning here with our young child. Parts were very nice like the ship, HBC collection, wildlife....others are showing their wear. It was something to fill our day and we all learned something new!

This place has hardly changed since the 70s and it shows. Obviously they haven't had any money to upgrade it, but it's pitifully dated, and needs a complete overhaul. If you're from a city larger than Winnipeg you won't be impressed, but if you have very young children it will at least keep them occupied.

This is a great place to spend a rainy day! You can spend all day here! It is not cheap to get it so it is well worth to spend time looking and reading the exhibits. They have added things since we were here last. If you have very very young kids it may be hard for the parents to... More

We spent an entire afternoon wandering around all the exhibits. It was a bit pricey to get in but well worth it. We weren't rushed in any way and we covered the entire museum. If you love history and want to see how things were, it is the place to go. We took friends from Alberta, they were extremely impressed.... More

The entire museum looks like it is stuck in the 1970s. The National Geographic Earth Explorer exhibit was new, but unimpressive to say the least - very amateur displays with minimal educational content for kids. Overall, the museum is not worth the price of admission.

This museum is a very, very important centre for the history of the fur trade and the great companies that drove this endeavor for centuries in Canada's Heartland. The archives of the Hudson Bay Company are here, and the various galleries depict the growth of the region over many millennia in an extremely empathetic way. It is truly a gem,... More

We went with four kids aged 4-8. They all LOVED different displays/interactive activities a the Science Gallery. Smaller guys enjoyed the water table and racing electric cars on a track. The older girls loved solving a crime, the mirror room, pulling their weight up with the pulleys. Consider a family annual membership as it is the same as the cost... More

A great collection of facilities...all well done. The museum is top notch and packed with great displays including a full size warship, turn of the century street scene ( love this), and natural displays. Love the adjacent planetarium and kids museum. Love the 60's architecture
