Manitoba Children's Museum

The Children’s Museum exists to spark kids’ creative learning. As a non-profit charitable organization, we believe in the potential of all children and provide an interactive learning environment that nurtures the power of imagination and spirit of self-discovery. For over 35 years, we have been the place for families to play, laugh, learn, and grow.

Housed in the oldest surviving train repair facility in Manitoba, the museum features twelve permanent galleries that spark kids’ creative learning. Visitors can hop aboard the authentic 1952 diesel locomotive and 1910 Pullman passenger coach, explore the five-storey tall Lasagna Lookout, test their perceptions in the giant Illusion Tunnel, perform water experiments in Splash Lab, and much more. A toddler-exclusive space, Tot Spot serves the needs of the museum’s smallest visitors. During the holiday season, guests can take a stroll through the land of fairytales in the Eaton’s Fairytale Vignettes display. In addition to our permanent galleries, the Children’s Museum also offers birthday parties, facility rentals, an onsite and online gift shop, temporary exhibitions, school programs, day camps, and special events.
