About the Museum:

The Children’s Museum is a fun family destination! Housed in the oldest surviving train repair facility in Manitoba, the Children's 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, take a stroll through the land of fairytales in Eaton’s Fairytale Vignettes display. All that PLUS public programs, workshops & special events!
