The Manitoba Museum
After a wonderful and hearty breakfast, my fellow travelers and I are shuttled to the Manitoba Museum, renowned for its vivid portrayal of Manitoba’s rich and colourful history, Planetarium shows, and Science Gallery exhibits.
Our Manitoba Museum program begins with a planetarium presentation depicting the northern lights, followed by an interactive program called “Inuit: People of the North”, which gives us a deeper knowledge and understanding of the traditional lifestyles of the Inuit people. We are able to get a closer look at Inuit art and clothing make of fur, skin, stone and bone and learn about how these resources were integral to the Inuit community.
After lunch our day at the Manitoba Museum continues as a Museum representative leads us on a private guided tour of the Museum, which focuses on galleries that complements our recently gained knowledge of Inuit communities and the history of the fur trade in the north.
At the end of our day, we shuttle back to our hotel to prepare for a group dinner and a good night rest.
