CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

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. The museum also maintains three offsite displays at the Transcona Legion, East End Community Club, and the Transcona Library as well as two photograph displays at Nello Altomare's MLA Office and ABC Powertools along Regent Avenue. 

2022 - 2023 Season

A Community Called Transcona

Transcona Museum Galleries | 141 Regent Ave W.

 

Town, City, Neighbourhood, Community. For over 110 years, Transcona has witnessed several changes as it evolved from a railway town on the prairies to a neighbourhood within the City of Winnipeg. Throughout all this, Transcona has maintained its sense of community. This exhibit captures the spirit of what we have created together as a community and shares our history and stories for the benefit of all.
