Had an outstanding visit to the Planetarium/Science Gallery with Kevin as our guide. He is upbeat and personable. He makes the tour/show exceptional! We learned about the aurora during the planetarium show. It was very interesting. Saw a moon rock in the gallery (probably the highlight for us). This is a small museum and was not crowded during our visit.... More

This Muesum is very good for children. It is physically and mentally engaging. Our 8 year old grandson enjoyed it very much. 45 minutes to one hour is enough time to cover it. I found the Lego section a waste of space. I really did not see any child spend that much time there, other than passing by.

Seeing all the stars were neat but it seemed like we were just watching a commercial for the google X project. When the speaker was talking it was difficult to hear what was being said. They named a lot of constellations and they were all pointed out. I would of like more interactive information about the stars and planets that... More

The planetarium show is fun to watch with an excellent commentator. there are many hands on science exhibits. I recommend that visitors spend the day also with the Manitoba Museum

Exhibits obviously older but interesting. Planetarium Nasdaq due to disrepair and strong smell of mold due to water damage. Deserves a refurbishment, as the displays, especially of native culture and local wildlife ecosystem are really informative.

Wonderful time spent walking through diorama's and beautiful displays of the geological and chronological time line of life in the North Americas. Spent three hours enjoying all the displays and we were especially impressed with the full size replica of the "Nonsuch" the first western trade ship for the Hudson Bay's Company. Certainly a must see if you are visiting... More

Amazing 3D experience of the solar systems and new footage of recent and current NASA explorations. It captivated both young and old. The planetarium had an astronaut simulator where you lay on a wheeled device and attempt to move around only using your arms to propel you and tasks to attempt. Many other interesting interactive displays.
