The Manitoba Museum has balanced its books for the 20th consecutive year, reporting a balanced budget at its annual general meeting Thursday night.
“Despite the challenging economic landscape and governments of all levels focused on fiscal restraints, the tireless efforts of our dedicated Museum staff, volunteers and Board of Governors helped us to sustain our financial record of 20 years,” said museum CEO Claudette Leclerc.
The museum had a surplus of $174,159 from its $5.5 million annual operating budget after required special payments to its pension plan were made.
Its doors saw 239,684 visitors stream through in the last fiscal year, including 84,296 school children.
