It's centrally located opposite City Hall. It's free. The exhibits are mostly diarama style with realistic looking settings. For fun, try to spot all the critters before looking at the accurate location guide of each exhibit. Children love this, especially with the larger animals, but there are also many birds and animals that are well hidden in plain sight that... More

Loved the Nonsuch exhibition and the film in the planetarium. In general a very good museum that is easily navigated and has beautiful displays.

Wonderfully realistic dioramas. Plenty to learn from the exhibits. Just when you think it should be over you turn the corner and there is more. We strongly suggest you pay for the three attractions (museum /planetarium /science exhibit). We spent the whole day and our teenage kids loved it. We were happy to hear our kids teach us about things... More

We took our 3 grandchildren to the museum and thought we'd be there an hour. 3-4 hours later we were leaving but the grandkids could have stayed longer. The main museum peaked their interest and the Nonsuch replica was a hit. The planetarium show we saw was ok. The science section was hands on and we could have spent a... More

I took my 11 year old when we were recently in Winnipeg, and we had to go back a second day. There is so much to see and do! If you are visiting on just one day, and only plan to do one attraction - pick the Museum. (The Planetarium and Science Center are good...but not worth the price of... More

We are in Winnipeg a few times a year, and always seem to visit the museum. I was not aware of the Irish raiders from the US in the 1860s. Now I am. I always enjoy visiting the museum, and I also learn something.
