Craft with Us - July & August

Join us for Craft with Us at the Transcona Museum! Create crafts related to the theme of the week and Transcona's history! We have three timeslots available on every crafting day; 10:45 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. Each timeslot is for 45 minutes. After the 45 minutes are up, you are welcome to continue your visit at the museum but must vacate the crafting area so it and the items used may be cleaned and disinfected.

Pre-registration is required as space is limited. Registration is now open through our website. Participants must register for a table (seating for up to 3 children, not including a parent or guardian). One parent must accompany the child if they are under 12. Masks are required when visiting the Transcona Museum.

KidsQuest - July & August

Explore the community of Transcona! KidsQuest is a scavenger hunt that guides our visitors around Transcona to discover historical landmarks (like CN 2747) and challenge them with activities and questions at each stop. Spend a day or the whole summer completing the quest - it's up to you! The deadline to complete and enter the draw is August 29. All participants have the chance to be entered into the Grand Prize draw on August 30. Price = $1.00 / booklet
