AAA Editor Notes
The Manitoba Museum, 190 Rupert Ave. at jct. Main St., illustrates the relationship of people and their environment in Manitoba's history through nine permanent galleries and a Discovery Room that changes every six months. The recently upgraded Earth History Gallery shows geologic and organic evolution, the Arctic/Sub-Arctic Gallery explores Inuit culture and the zone's flora and fauna, and the Boreal Forest Gallery features a diorama of a granite cliff, waterfall, marsh, Cree family and a wandering moose. A bat cave, snake pit and a Ukrainian rye farm can be seen at the Parklands/Mixed Woods Gallery.

Visitors can see a replica of the ketch Nonsuch; the ship's 1668 voyage to Hudson Bay opened western Canada to commerce and European settlement. The Hudson's Bay Company Gallery highlights fur trading and early exploration. A teepee and a sod house are part of the Grasslands Gallery, and the Urban Gallery shows a 1920s boomtown Winnipeg.

The museum also houses a planetarium and science gallery.
