The Transcona Museum has three gallery spaces in which the exhibits rotate on a yearly basis. Our Front Gallery holds our largest gallery space and the yearly main exhibition. The Hall Gallery displays smaller, rotating exhibits. In the Back Gallery, there are a number of varied exhibitions and our interactive Kids Zone Imagination Station. The museum also maintains three offsite displays at the Transcona Legion, East End Community Club, and the Transcona Library.
