Starting Tuesday, September 7 the Transcona Museum will be required to ask for proof of vaccination from visitors.  From the information we have gathered, children born after Dec. 31, 2009 who are not eligible to be immunized will be able to visit with a fully-immunized adult.  Masks and Social Distancing are mandatory.  Open to 50% capacity. Contact tracing info will be collected.  Thank you.

VISITING THE MUSEUM

BEFORE YOU VISIT

  • As per the Manitoba Government Public Health orders effective as of September 3rd at 12:01 am:

    • Starting Tuesday, September 7th museums will be required to ask for proof of vaccination from visitors to access indoor museum spaces.  From the information we have gathered, children born after Dec. 31, 2009 who are not eligible to be immunized will be able to visit with a fully-immunized adult.

    • Masks are required in all indoor public places.

    • Open to 50 percent capacity.

  • Do not visit the Transcona Museum:

    • if you are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms

    • if you are not fully vaccinated and have been in close contact with anyone sick with COVID-19

    • if you are not fully vaccinated and have travelled outside Manitoba in the last 14 days

ARRIVING AT THE MUSEUM 

  • Visitors will enter through the front door of the museum. If you require our accessible entrance you will be directed to our back double doors. 

  • Visitors will be asked to provide proof of vaccination and identification to confirm their identity. 

  • We will be collecting contact tracing information, as stipulated by the provincial government. If you are uncomfortable providing any of this info, we will not be able to permit your entry into the museum at this time.

  • As we are admission by donation we do not have a timed ticketed entry system in place. Instead, there will be a sign on the door. If the sign is green you may enter (please note the door may be locked - if so please ring the doorbell). If the sign is red, we are either at capacity or are disinfecting/cleaning, so please wait on the sidewalk while social distancing. 

  • When entering please ensure the vestibule is empty of other visitors or staff before preceding inside the building. 

  • Hand sanitizer stations are available at all points of entry/exit within the museum, including the main entrance.

  • We are limited to 50% occupancy restrictions. This may result in wait times for entry.

WHILE VISITING THE MUSEUM 

  • We have removed all high-touch areas of the exhibitions.  We ask that you please not touch any artifacts not in display cases as they can not be disinfected.

  • We would prefer contactless payment at this time for gift shop purchases or donations.  We can accept debit and credit cards.  

OUTDOOR MUSEUM EVENTS

  • We ask that visitors wear masks while participating in outdoor museum events (i.e., visiting the CN 2747). 

  • Social distancing will be enforced.  We will also provide hand sanitizer. 

 

WALKING TOURS

  • We ask that visitors wear masks while participating in community walking tours. 

  • Pre-registration for the walking tours is required and we have limited the number of tickets available for each tour to ensure we are able to properly social distance.

  • Social distancing will be enforced while on the walking tour.

  • We will provide hand sanitizer, and we have a microphone and speaker system to ensure participants can hear us during the tour while maintaining proper social distancing.​
