Travel Through Time
Explore a turn-of-the century Russian Mennonite street village on our 40 acre site. Taste traditional ethnic fare at the museum’s Livery Barn Restaurant, and explore a classic Mennonite housebarn and a fully operational Dutch windmill during our summer season. View historic and heirloom treasures from Poland and Russia to Canada, displayed in the Main and Gerhard Ens galleries, and find that perfect souvenir at Village Books & Gifts, all open year-round in the Village Centre.
There is always something new to experience. The changing annual themes and temporary exhibits, along with new artefacts donated each year, celebrate the Mennonite heritage and culture. We also offer a broad range of activities and demonstrations, from wagon rides to bread baking, throughout the summer on our Festival days. All of these features combine in this bustling village to offer a fresh experience with each visit.
COVID – 19 Update
March 18, 2020: As part of our continuing efforts to act thoughtfully and responsibly concerning COVID-19, effective March 19, 2020, Mennonite Heritage Village will be closed to all visiting public until April 30, 2020. We will also restrict access to all non-essential volunteers for the same time period. As we continue to monitor the situation, we will update our practices as needed to reflect Government of Canada protocols.
March 17, 2020: In these uncertain times, we feel it is important to communicate about the measures we are taking regarding the CoVID-19 virus. We have been closely monitoring important updates as provided by Manitoba Health as well as the provincial and federal governments. We want you to know that the health and safety of our community remains a top priority.
At this time, effective immediately, we’re taking precautions by opting to postpone all MHV public events until after April 30, 2020. This is our first step in working to reduce the spread of this virus.
Out of respect for our staff, volunteers, and community we are asking that guests with flu or cold-like symptoms please remain at home. We look forward to welcoming you another time!
As we continue to monitor the situation we will update our practices as needed to reflect recommendations from the Government of Canada.
