Learning about science in a museum is safer than experiencing it first-hand by accidentally ingesting a science textbook. Embrace science with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-year individual membership to The Manitoba Museum (a $60 value). This deal is valid for new members only, and your membership must be activated within 30 days of today's feature.
The Manitoba Museum takes visitors on a tour through the human heritage and natural history of the province, with selections from the museum’s collection of 2.3 million artifacts on display in nine permanent galleries. Travel back to a time of sea scorpions and scary cephalopods with the Ancient Seas exhibit, which depicts prehistoric marine life across three-screen animation, or soak up the ghostly seasalt of the Nonsuch, a replica of the 17th-century ship whose crusades for fur brought commerce to western Canada and beaver shawls to naked napes. Other galleries explore the Hudson’s Bay Company, the Boreal Forest, and the Internetless eclecticism of 1920s Winnipeg. The Manitoba Museum also houses a planetarium and a science gallery, ideal for guests looking to get eyes- and hands-on.
With a one-year individual membership, you’ll enjoy unlimited free admission to the museum galleries, the science gallery, and shows at the planetarium, as well as a 10 per cent discount on regularly priced purchases from the Museum Shop. Members will also receive free admission to participating Canadian science centres, invitations to exclusive museum events, discounted admission to special exhibitions at The Manitoba Museum, and a subscription to the museum’s quarterly newsletter, in addition to other benefits. Absorb natural history without again attempting to enjoy a sauna in a volcano with a membership to The Manitoba Museum.
- The attention to detail in the displays was amazing and really lifelike. Very educational about the local peoples, history and geography.
