Manitoba Museum: Adult & Family Adventures at the Manitoba Museum

Adult & Family Adventures at the Manitoba Museum

Winnipeg, MB (November 15, 2018): Now that the snow is falling, the temperature dropping and hockey season is in full swing (Go Jets! Go Moose!), the Manitoba Museum invites you to come in out of the cold and discover why hockey is Canada's game. Families will want to take in the MuZZZeum Sleepover, and adults will want to enjoy a cold one at the After Hours: Overtime! party.

The Museum is going into Overtime for our next After Hours evening of fun on November 29. Visitors can test their slap shot, puck handling, and skating skills with On-Ice Coaches from the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre. Hockey fans can show off their team colours in our Super Fan Photo Booth, and discover stories about the history of hockey in the feature exhibition, Hockey: The Stories Behind Our Passion. They can dance until the last whistle blows with DJ King Cabernet and enjoy a cash bar with complimentary snacks.

At the MuZZZeum Family Sleepover, families can share an adventure they will never forget! Starting at 6 pm on January 12 through to 9 am on January 13, overnighters will have exclusive access to the entire Museum. They can explore Manitoba's history in the Galleries, discover the wonders of the universe in the Planetarium, and watch amazing science demonstrations in the Science Gallery. They can walk around the newly refurbished Nonsuch Gallery, where a mate will be on board to tell the tales of the 17th-century ship. Or climb into the beautiful tipi and imagine a life on the plains in our Grasslands Gallery. Folks can learn about Canada's game in the feature exhibit Hockey: The Stories Behind Our Passion and see that on the hockey is everywhere on a scavenger hunt. They can try on vintage hockey equipment and jerseys, and then pose to make a digital hockey card. The highlight of the sleepover is a late-night flashlight adventure in the darkened galleries! Exhausted by all the fun, tired campers will claim a corner of the Science Gallery and sleep among the exhibits. Evening and morning snacks are included.
