ABOUT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

The Transcona Museum offers teachers the opportunity to enhance their classroom teachings with uniquely themed educational programs. Our Educational Program policy has been updated as of March 2019.

Due to COVID-19, the Transcona Museum has transitioned our education programs from in-person attendance to a virtual platform. Our information, policies, and booking forms have been updated. Please contact the Transcona Museum if you have any questions. Thank you.

About our Educational Programs

 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to facilitate in-person education programs at this time. The Transcona Museum is now offering virtual education programs! See below for more information.

 

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 $10.00 fee and need to be approved by the Board of Directors before confirmation can be given. 

VIRTUAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS (NEW)

Virtual Education Programs offer your group the opportunity to visit the Transcona Museum while participating in a live online interactive presentation with our Museum Curators. These online programs feature a slideshow presentation, as well as up-close examinations of real artifacts, archival materials and specimens. Please note, Zoom is our preferred platform.
