The Manitoba Museum
Visitors can get a detailed look at the lives of the Plains Indians and the early prairie settlers at this museum located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. It has nine galleries including a planetarium, a science gallery, and a five-story sailing ship, the Nonsuch. The Manitoba Museum was recently awarded the Michelin Guide's highest rating, "Worth the Trip."
The attention to detail in the displays was amazing and really lifelike. Very educational about the local peoples, history and geography. Very reasonably priced. Attached planetarium excellent for astronomy lovers.
Was in Winnipeg for a family funeral, decided to pop in to the musuem to take a look. Rude staff, and it wasn't at all interesting. I feel for the people who live in Winnipeg ... boring place stuck in the middle of nowhere.
A real must-see in Winnipeg. Learn about the fascinating history behind the city and the province, with top quality recreations of historical places and the Manitoba country-side. You'll love the Onesuch replica.
And this is not the only thing to see or do in the Museum. The Science Gallery is perfect for children, but will also fascinate grown-ups.
With at least two different shows, the Planetarium is a place to return to, even on the same day. They say the Christmas show even draws many of the locals back year after year.
The museum is situated downtown, right next to the Opera House, across the street from city hall, and within walking distance of most of the other top attractions, such as The Forks, the Railway Museum, Goldeyes indy baseball, and great places to shop on Portage Rd, and Main St.
This place truly rock i can't argue about that but it isn't really good for birthday parties.I don't know why because when I went there for a birthday party there was WAY,WAY more learning than fun its better there with family any ways thats my onpinion.
