- It is extremely well done. You go through a bunch of emotions upon your visit. Definitely set aside and afternoon.Written September 26, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I went to this zoo for the first time and was impressed with the amount of space available in the enclosures for those animals that like to roam a lot like the tigers, wolves, etc. There is a tank to watch the polar bears swim but, unfortunately, it was a warmer day and the time of day I went, they were sleeping. You need to arrive for your visit early in the day to really see the animals out and about and not sleeping, hidden from the sun. The site was clear and easy to follow with good paths. Check out the butterfly exhibit.Written September 9, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This is definitely worth-seeing. Winnipeg has impressive public spaces. We went on a Sunday afternoon and families were enjoying picnics. It’s awe-inspiring that you can park for free. The English Garden and Leo Mao Sculptures were worth the visit.Written August 23, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We hadn't been to the Forks in several years and things have certainly changed. Lots of interesting little unique shops and different food court choices. At one time there were some very high end restaurants in The Forks but there are fewer today. Still a good selection from fast food to Tapas.Written September 20, 2022
- I’ve always wanted to visit Winnipeg. Many people asked why? Just a feeling and learning how my fellow Canadians live. Winnipeg has impressive public spaces and the Museum is one of the finest I’ve ever visited.
It’s a strong collection with an integrated story of the history of Manitoba woven throughout. The donation by the Hudson’s Bay Company including a replica sea-faring vessel and the walk-thru 1920’s Winnipeg street experience go above the “typical Canadian city museum”. Be sure to see the Winnipeg movie.
Not knowing what to expect, I arrived two hours before the Museum closed and seeing all the galleries took that time. I didn’t have a chance to see the gift shop as it was closing as I left. It’s definitely worth experiencing if you’re coming to Winnipeg.Written August 23, 2022
- I called 45 minutes before getting there and was able to book a tour for 2:00 PM I believe. The tour guide was friendly and pleasant. I believe his name was Nick. He was happy to answer questions and was enthusiastic about the mint. The gift shop also had some interesting items. My wife really enjoyed the tour! It was hard for our small children to see much unless we held them, but we were able to bring our stroller. It was $10 for adults, and our small children were free so it was $20 total, which worked out to a little more than $15 USD on my credit card bill for us with the 30% exchange rate. It's definitely something to do in Winnipeg. There is a large "statue" of a loon in the front of the building that my children liked. I don't think many Americans get out to Winnipeg, so you'll definitely have a unique experience having visited this place if you are American!Written August 3, 2022
- We were a mixed group of adults and older children (10 and 14) who participated in the tour A Prairie Legacy : A Bison and its People. It was an amazing experience for us all. The tour includes the Bison safari where you get to travel among the herd in a small bus, a short hike of the grounds, paddling a voyageur canoe on the lake, learning to throw a traditional spear, learning about traditional items made from bison parts, and cooking (then eating) bannock over an open fire. It was a very full afternoon. The 3 guides involved with the excursions were all delightful and well prepared. We were fortunate to have a lovely day, not too hot.Written September 27, 2022
- This is part of Assiniboine Park. So many things to experience that at least a full day should be taken or spread over several days. Easily accessible by public transit. Pack a lunch or enjoy a snack at Joe Black Cafe just before entering the park from Portage. Once on site rent a bike or stroll the grounds. Free entrance. A wonderful Winnipeg gem.Written August 23, 2022
- When we visited, there seems to be a stay-in protest at the legislature grounds. That concerned me about my safety, but there were patrols around the building though. Unfortunately I couldn't get a good picture of the building as the fences ruined the view.
However, the rear side made a good compromise, complete with the Riel statue at the riverbank. The access to the river was closed sadly. Apparently they offer hourly tours of the interior, but I wasn't able to attend due to lack of time. But nice to see the great architecture and the highlight, the Golden Boy, regardless.Written August 13, 2022
- This is a small but lovely park area with quite a few attractions, such as the market, a children's theater, an inn, the Human Rights Museum, a skate park, a river walk, and a historical area. There are information plaques throughout, and you can access the pedestrian bridge that crosses the river. This is a nice area to spend a few hours, although you will run across a few sketchy characters here and there. There is plenty of paid parking in lots and a garage.Written August 14, 2022
- Lots of information on the history of Aviation in Manitoba. Excellent displays and interactive stuff for adults and kids. Have visited several aviation museums and this one rates in the top 3.Written September 20, 2022
- I enjoyed watching the Goldeyes take on the Chicago Dogs. I was very impressed with the food and the variety of options available. It made it hard to decide what I wanted to eat, as I wanted to try everything. So great to have other options other than burgers and dogs. A great way to spend an evening.Written August 5, 2022
- The Witches Hut by the Duck Pond in Kildonan Park was finally open. We got to finally go in. It was so nice to see it. If you want to feed the ducks, they have food that you can buy to feed the ducks. Don't feed the ducks bread because that would make them sick.Written September 10, 2022
- I appreciate the art that was on display at the gallery. The unfortunate part is I started seeing similar types of pieces using similar mediums and I got bored. I don't mean to take away from the art. It was all beautiful and well crafted. There was just a lot of the same. I would go see it but would check to see what has rotated out in case you visit again and it is still the same art on display. The benefit to this gallery is that they have some regular pieces and rotating new art that comes in from time to time.Written September 9, 2022
- We went with our 5 year old daughter who had a lot of fun. For our 14-year-old son, it was fun, but his comment was that the park had few options for him and the ones that did exist were more of a stomach challenge than adrenaline, he still had fun.Written August 20, 2022
