Spring Break at the Children's Museum

Posted on Mar 17, 2014 by The Forks Market

Anyone else out there tired of winter yet? Don’t get us wrong…we love Winnipeg in all its seasons and splendour, but after being so cold and snowy for so very long – come Spring Break, we say enough is enough, and we plan to break out of winter in a whirlwind week of fun!

The Children’s Museum will be planting the seeds of creativity from Saturday, March 29 to Friday April 4during this year’s Spring Break Line-Up. Throughout Spring Break, kids can participate in exciting activities with special guests daily and watch their learning grow.

Kicking off our action-packed week, the Children’s Museum will be hosting the special ticketed Junior JUNOS event on Saturday, March 29 from 9:30AM – 12:00PM in collaboration with the 2014 JUNO Awards.

Even the smallest music fan will love to walk the red carpet during this 2014 JUNOS Children’s Album of the Year nomineeshowcase. With musical performances by Charlie Hope, Gary Rasberry, Helen Austin, Marie-Claude, and Treehouse TV’s Splash ‘N Boots, guests can catch the top acts of the year perform live in concert, then rock the day away exploring the museum’s twelve permanent galleries and building their own takeaway instruments. And…if that’s not enough to get your heart singing, there’ll even be a special appearance by Winnipeg’s own JUNO award winner, Fred Penner! You can get your tickets online here today.

Music not really your scene? Then stand back, because we’re going to perform some SCIENCE on Sunday, March 30 and Wednesday, April 2! Let’s Talk Science groups from the University ofWinnipeg and the University of Manitoba will conduct a series of public experiments and hands-on science activities that are sure to cause an ‘explosive’ reaction of delight for museum visitors.

The fun continues Monday, March 31 when our creative and resourceful friends from Art City will show our guests how to find art in everyday materials and help kids create their very own takeaway masterpieces.

Children’s Museum: Knock knock.

Reader: Who’s there?

Children’s Museum: Who.

Reader: Who who?

Children’s Museum Is there an owl in here?

Why, yes there certainly is! Or at least there WILL BE when we’re joined on Tuesday, April 1 by special guests, the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre!

We’re not kidding when say that April Fool’s Day is for the birds – the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre will be onsite from 11AM to 3PM to show off some of their fine feathered friends and to share little known facts about these special birds as part of their avian display.

Last but certainly not least, on Friday, April 4 Steve Rempel and the team from Prairie Exotics will be at the Children’s Museum to showcase a variety of exotic reptiles, amphibians, and insects from their collection. Guests can learn more about these unique animals while getting up close and personal with these exotic creatures!
