Under Construction

The Manitoba Electrical Museum is in the process of designing and constructing an extensive new exhibit on Sustainable Development. 

It will encompass the entire lower level of the museum in a dynamic, interactive youth-oriented display.  The exhibit will explore how the energy we use and make impacts sustainable development of the earth’s natural resources, with a focus on indigenous and environmental stewardship.

A tentative launch of the exhibit is being planned for September 2021.

Stay tuned for progress reports!
