The Manitoba Museum is an award-winning heritage and edutainment centre welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Winner of the Michelin Green Guide's top award - designated "Worth the Trip," the museum features an ever-changing variety of touring and specialty exhibits.
The Manitoba Museum is noted for the dramatic walk-through settings among nine spectacular permanent galleries. From the Nonsuch, a replica of a full-size 17th century ship that sailed the world, to the Urban Gallery, a trip back through time to the roaring '20s, to the dramatic Orientation Gallery with its recreation of an early bison hunt, a trip to the museum is a journey through Manitoba's past, present, and future.
The Manitoba Museum is the first Planetarium in Canada to offer visitors the Digistar(r) 5 All-Dome digital projection technology. With a rotating schedule of eight new shows, this new projection system dramatically enhances the visitor experience using two wide-angle video projectors to cover the entire dome with a single seamless video image.
The Science Gallery
The Science Gallery features many fun, interactive exhibits that encourage learning and discovery. Visitors can learn what they would weigh on other planets, interact with a tornado, explore basic principles of science, and try out their talents on a laser harp.
