Plenty of Activities at Manitoba Museum on Holiday Monday

Plenty of Activities at Manitoba Museum on Holiday Monday

By Tyler Sutherland

If the weather gods do indeed bring that chance of showers Environment Canada is calling for on Monday, there isn’t a shortage of things to do in the city.

The Manitoba Museum is open all day Monday, August 2, and will be featuring their popular summer displays, including Ancient Seas (left), Shakin’ All Over and Laser Shows.

Ancient Seas is an animated undersea observatory, and the first of its kind in Canada. Shakin’ All Over is a showcase of Manitoba’s musical legacy while viewing some artifacts donated by legendary musicians. This Saturday, live entertainment is presented by the Winnipeg Folk Festival, featuring Karla Adolphe, Scott Nolan and Mason Weselowski, the Young Performers Program 2010 Participant. Entertainment runs every Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.

The museum is particularly proud of its Planetarium Laser Shows, which were brought back by popular demand. Choose between Queen, Pink Floyd, Daft Punk, the British N-Vasion, or all of them. A special family show plays daily at noon and 3 p.m.

The Manitoba Museum will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Once you’re done there, you can head over to the Western Canada Aviation Museum and see the WW II Lancaster Bomber.
