Planetarium and dinosaur exhibit

 

 Members Request:

We will be going to the Planetarium and Dinosaur exhibit at the Manitoba Museum.

We shall meet for 1pm in the lobby by where we pay for the tickets. There are tables and chairs there to sit at if you like. There is also a gift shop to browse if you are interested. We shall pay for our tickets when we meet up.

Cost is $15 per person for both venues. A good value for the outing.

 

We shall start by taking a stroll through the Dino exhibit which is filled with animatronic dinosaurs.

They appear to come to life. So I hope you don't get scared.

Just kidding...  It should be pretty awesome if you like that sort of thing.

I do.

 ***********

Then for 3pm we will head to the planetarium and take in the Aurora Borealis. I am told it will come to life as if you are witnessing it first hand outside.

Suppose to be a fantastic show.

Experience the Aurora
Experience the Aurora is the latest full dome movie produced by Evans & Sutherland.  Over seven months in the Arctic Circle, crews captured timelapse images of the Aurora Borealis with high resolution digital SLR cameras outfitted with fisheye lenses. 

The results are spectacular.  For the first time the aurora has been captured as it was meant to be experienced, as a display that covers the entire sky. 

This immersive show shares the science behind the aurora and tells the story of our quest to find and photograph the aurora for wraparound display in full dome theaters.  This show is suitable for all audiences.

 

 

NO $2 meet up fee for this meet up.

    Really loved getting out and seeing y'all. Thanks again, Dave for getting my ticket ahead of time or for sure I'd have been late for the planetarium show! Yes, Earls was definitely a hi-lite, lots of laughs and good conversation.

    I have seen the aurora live--God's lightshow. I lived in Thompson for a couple of years. One night the sky was just on fire, from horizon to horizon in any direction. My husband and I jumped in the car and drove about 20 km out of town so we could see them with no light pollution. It was transporting. There's nothing like the real thing, baby

    It was quite a while since I'd been to either the museum or planetarium so it was nice to get out & see something different. I enjoyed both. The meal, company, & conversion at Earls was also the highlight of the day for me.

    Really good - was like being a kid again.

    I had a very nice but exhausting day out. The dinosaur exhibit was nice but small. Interesting but I can see how it disappoints some. The aurora show in the planetarium was nice, but not all I expected. I was told it was fantastic and I think seeing it in person is spectacular compared. Still had a good time. Half of us went out for dinner to Earl's - the food and company was the best highlight of the day.

    It was fun. Really crowded and a lot of kids there but what do you expect on a Saturday afternoon. The robotics on the dinosaurs were very impressive. I am glad I got to see it. It has been an age since I have been to the Planetaruim. I ended up staying for the 2nd show.

    The dinosaur exhibit seemed more geared to families and children. Planetarium show was very good, however.

    So angry! I missed my bus and am not going to make it :-(

    So sorry to bail at the last minute. I was so looking forward to this. My son came down with strep throat, along with the diabetes and Down syndrome, and I have to stay home and monitor blood sugars.

    Where is the best place to park around the Museum?

    March 11, 2013

    • Stacey

      There is some parking on the street but mostly parking in the paid lots.

    Can't make it for 1, but will meet you all at the 3 o'clock show, hopefully.

    Wow, haven't been there in ages. Sorry, can't attend this one as I have my daughter that weekend.

    March 12, 2013

    • Stacey

      The museum is open to the public. If she is at least 7 and not afraid of dinosaurs she would like it.

      March 13, 2013

  • Chris R.

    Not this time, thanks anyway.

    March 12, 2013

  • jan

    Yes, for sure, it is geared toward kids....but is as good as or better than, anything that u would see at the museum. Saw the dinosaurs a couple of months ago and looking forward to it again.

    No. Dinosaurs are separate exhibit from planetarium. Planetarium is extra $.

    March 7, 2013

    • Stacey

      For this meet up, you get both for $15. I tried picking what I thought would be good to see. It has been a long time since I have gone. Quite a few members were interested in checking out the museum and seeing what it was like again. It costs $3000 to go on a trip up north to see the Auroras, so this part is a bargain. It is suppose to feel like you are right there.

      Sorry Lana, I wasn't referring to the price, but rather wondering whether the Planetarium was also targetted to younger children... Thanks for your input!

      March 8, 2013

  • Simran N.

    Thanks a lot, Stacey! I reallly appreciate what you are doing for this group! Your efforts are not going unnoticed. Thank you again!!!

    Very disappointing. I took a friend visiting from Calgary and he was disappointed too. The target audience is small children. Sorry not worth $14.

    • Simran N.

      Is that the case for the Planetarium too?
