MHV is one of six museums that have been designated as Signature Museums by the province of Manitoba. These museums showcase special collections and have the potential to be significantly enhanced heritage tourism attractions. Through a partnership with the province, these six museums plan and deliver joint marketing every year. We met last week to set a plan in place for 2012.

One of our joint marketing ventures this year was the creation of a new website. We are pleased with the fine work of Chez Koop Design, a Steinbach design company. Check out the website at Anyone with a current MHV membership will, at the very least, get a reduced admission rate at any of these museums. A number will give members of other Signature Museums free admission.

In addition to MHV, the Signature Museums are The Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum in Brandon, The Manitoba Agriculture Museum in Austin, The Saint Boniface Museum in Saint Boniface, The New Iceland Heritage Museum in Gimli and The Western Canada Aviation Museum in Winnipeg. is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
