This year THM will be hosting a Drop In program daily from March 25th to 28th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visitors will have the chance to make crafts, get up close to real artifacts, and participate in story time. Please note that all children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Every year THM hosts Kid's Quest, a local scavenger hunt that gives kids the chance to discover their own community. The booklet based hunt begins in the Museum, moves out into the community and then returns to the Museum. Once the Kids' Quest is complete, each child will recieve a prize and be entered into our grand prize draw. Available by drop- in or for larger groups such as daycares, we recommend booking ahead to ensure we have enough prizes on hand. Suggested donation: $1 per booklet. Check back to this page in June for more information about our 2013 Kids' Quest Program.
Children between five and twelve are welcome to join the Museum staff every Monday, Wednesday and Friday through out the summer months. Our themed Drop-In days are free. Come hear stories, play games, and make crafts as you learn about Transcona's heritage. Come for half an hour or an hour and a half, it's up to you! Cost: absolutely free! Check back to this page in June to see a breakdown of the dates and weekly themes for 2013.
Guided Walking Tours
Every Thursday throughout the summer, the Museum will host a one-hour walking tour of downtown Transcona. Weekly tours begin at 2:30pm and leave from the Transcona BIZ Market Garden at 135 Regent Avenue West. These walking tours are a great way to learn more about the development of our community or share stories with those just learning about our community. Check back to this page in June to see the dates for 2013.
