ABOUT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
The Transcona Museum offers teachers the opportunity to enhance their classroom teachings with uniquely themed educational programs. Please note our Educational Program policy has been updated as of 21 March 2019. The Transcona Museum will honour the rates for groups who have booked prior to this date.
About our Educational Programs
Our Educational Programs are based on the Manitoba Social Studies and Science curriculums and are suitable for a wide range of ages. If you cannot find what you are looking for, let us know. The Transcona Museum is able to adapt our programs to fit with your teaching or group’s needs. Our programs are also available to community groups, social clubs, daycares, and more.
Programs are available year-round from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. The latest program can start at 3:00 pm. Program bookings after 4:00 pm are subject to an additional fee and need to be approved by the Board of Directors before confirmation can be given.
All programs are available offsite when requested. There will be an additional $10.00 fee for bookings 10 km or more distance from the Transcona Museum.

Adult supervision is required during the entire length of the program. Recommended Adult Supervision Ratio:

Booking / Confirmation Guidelines
Please prepare the following information for your booking:
Name of school or organization
Number of students & adult supervisors
Possible dates and times (a "Rainy Day Backup" is required for groups walking to the museum)
Optional walking tour
A booking request must be made at least 2 weeks in advance prior to the expected date of your visit. There are a limited number of program slots available per day, so we recommend booking well in advance. Once all the booking details have been captured, a confirmation will be emailed. The booking must be acknowledged within 2 business days (email, phone, fax) to finalize the booking. If no confirmation is received, the booking slot will be released.
To book your group, call Transcona Museum at 204-222-0423 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For your convenience, a Transcona Museum Educational Program booking form is available at the bottom of the page.
In the event of a cancellation, please provide the Transcona Museum with a minimum of 48 hours notice to avoid being billed. Groups that do not provide cancellation notice and fail to show for their appointed booking time will be billed the full amount based on the reservation.
For groups that walk to the museum, a minimum of 2 hours notice is required and the "Rainy Day Backup" booking time will be used instead. Failure to provide notice may result in a 25% additional charge.
Your Museum Visit
On the day of your visit, please ensure your group arrives on time. We recommend arriving 5-10 minutes before the start of the program. Please bring only what the students need for their visit (as space is limited), and keep your valuables with you at all times. Food and drinks are not allowed in the galleries.
