Daycare

Summer Programming

We offer daycare groups a tailored selection of “flash visit” programs designed to give children a sampling of life in the good ol’ days. Daycare programs are available Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Each program includes a 15-minute tour, focusing on exhibits relevant to your chosen 30-minute activity. Choose one activity for a short visit or extend your stay by choosing two activities.

To make a reservation, please contact us at reservations@msbm.mb.ca or (204) 237-4500 ext.420.
