The 25-year-old Manitoba Children’s Museum relocated to an 1889 train repair facility in The Forks almost 20 years ago. It hosts nearly 135,000 visitors every year. No wonder the Winnipeg institution needed a $10-million revamp. It recently reopened in June with an added 325 square metres of space for a welcome centre, lunch room and museum shop. There are 12 completely new galleries including a forced-perspective, multicolour Illusion Tunnel, a climbable Lasagna Lookout with textured layers, a Milk Machine for a “dairy” good time, a Pop M’art that’s an art store/workshop, a Splash Lab complete with Bubble Wall and Tumble Zone where kids can design their very own cityscapes. There’s even a Tot Spot that’s a mini version of the museum for the littlest visitors. Admission for visitors aged “1 to 101” is $10.
