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.
