School Visits

The Centre has been designed specifically to cater for visiting school groups of up to 50 students. Visit times are normally 10:00 am - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm every weekday during the school term.

To tour or visit the interpretative displays takes about 1 to 1.5 hours. Programming activities and workshops are also available. We would suggest that groups wanting to visit both the displays and participate in programming activities book for the whole day.

The interactive displays and programming activities are designed specifically to support relevant sections of the Manitoba School Curriculum. Although the main target range is for grades 5 - 8, curriculum links and programming extends to both younger and older age ranges. There is provision for eating a packed lunch (please bring your own), either inside the Centre, or outside in the picnic area. Please ask us for details.
