UNWRAP WRAPPED WITH YOUR FAMILY THIS DECEMBER
Egypt is taking centre stage at the Museum right now. During the month of December, you can experience Wrapped: The Mummy of Pesed with your whole family. There will be mummification demonstrations, you can learn to write your name in hieroglyphs or take part in a fun-filled scavenger hunt. And of course, you won’t want to miss the first real Egyptian mummy in Winnipeg in 45 years!
New at the Planetarium is Back to the Moon For Good, a show that follows the journey of teams from around the world as they compete to land a robotic spacecraft on the Moon for the first time in more than 40 years. Stars of the Pharaohs and The Alien who Stole Christmas is also on the holiday show schedule.
The Museum will be open every day during Winter Break, except for December 25th. For complete hours, click:
