Some of the displays are a bit dated and worn but it is great place to learn about the people and geography of Central Canada. The Metis buffalo hunt diorama is very good and is a wonderful entrance to the natural history gallery. It seems that the museum has upgraded some exhibits in some galleries but left adjacent displays with an older (ie 1970s) feel. The highlight is the ship Nonsuch - a beautiful recreation of an actual ship. It was built and sailed on Hudson Bay before being installed in the museum. Kids were having a great time running around but we really appreciated the authenticity and the story . The Nonsuch is definitely a hidden gem in Winnipeg.

Much of this Museum first opened back in the 70s and has been updated over time. The detailed work throughout the many galleries was a labor of love. If you did not grow up in Manitoba you especially should visit this Museum because it will give you an insight into the long multi-layered history of the province of Manitoba. Well done!

There is a lot of history in this place. It is quite big with tons of information about manitoba. I strongly recommend the gallery. The planetarium was interesting too but I was expecting more.

This was our second time visiting the Manitoba Museum. Nancy, our tour guide was outstanding. She hit the highlights while allowing plenty of time for questions and exploration on our own. The exhibits appear to be constantly changing...which keeps things fresh for return visitors. Lots of children on school tours the day of our visit. Their enthusiasm was infectious. This is a great museum to learn about the stars, nature, history/development of Canada. I highly recommend a visit!
