Many years ago, Algonquian Indians settled in the area that we now call Manitoba, Canada. To be more specific, these First Nation settlers built their home near Lake Winnipeg - and a lake with a name that means “Muddy Water” in the Western Cree dialect. By the early 1700s, Winnipeg was a bustling, thriving Algonquian town. It was around this time that European colonists visited the area. Many of these colonists hailed from France. Not only did they establish several fur trading posts in the area, but they also started families with many of Winnipeg’s Indigenous residents. On November 3rd, 1873, Winnipeg had become an official Canadian city. It was James McKay, a Metis legislator, who gave the city of Winnipeg its name. The rest, as they say, is history.
Much of Winnipeg’s early history still impacts the city to this day. Winnipeg is still a major economic hub for Canada’s Manitoba province; centuries later, trade is still a significant contributor to Winnipeg’s growth as a city. However, Winnipeg also receives tons of tourists from all over the world. That’s probably because Winnipeg is still a cultural melting pot. In fact, Winnipeg has the largest Indigenous population in any Canadian city. A trip to Winnipeg won’t only be a fun and exciting experience, it can also be an enlightening one.
Winnipeg is a large city. As of 2017, the city reported a population of 749,534. Winnipeg’s streets are always abuzz with commuters. Many of these folks are simply going to and from work, school, and various activities. However, there’s also a large number of tourists in Winnipeg on any given day. In 2019 alone, 3.5 million tourists were estimated to have visited Winnipeg throughout the entire year. And, 3.5 million tourists means large crowds in Winnipeg. Large crowds mean limited luggage storage space - unless you use Bounce. We’re a bag storage service that operates 7 days a week. We have multiple spots to stow your stuff in Winnipeg.

We started this guide off with a brief history lesson about Winnipeg’s development. We were only able to reach the tip of that iceberg, though. Individuals who are genuinely interested in learning more about the city should visit its landmarks, memorials, and museums. There, they can find artifacts and written accounts from the distant past.
Dalnavert Museum and Visitors' Centre: It’s easy to get lost in Winnipeg; even with maps and GPS systems, travelers can get turned around more than a few times. That’s why we recommend stopping by the Dalnavert Museum and Visitors' Centre. Guests can appreciate the amazing exhibits on display and speak with people who know Winnipeg like the backs of their hands.
The Manitoba Museum: The Manitoba Museum is one of the best places to learn about the province’s history, genealogy, and culture. The exhibits here are extremely comprehensive; they provide even greater insight into the lives of Manitoba’s First Nation inhabitants. Guests will also find an extensive timeline of Winnipeg’s history.
Winnipeg Art Gallery: We weren’t kidding when we said that art is big in Winnipeg. The WAG preserves more than 24,000 art pieces year-round. There’s always a special exhibit or two in the gallery as well. Guests should definitely leave their luggage with Bounce before visiting this venue. Enjoy it hands-free so you can take it all in.
Winnipeg’s fur trading industry is still alive and well today. It has merely taken on another form. Shoppers no longer have to travel to distant trading posts to purchase goods. Instead, they can visit Winnipeg’s shopping malls and markets. Street vendors and farmers’ markets also crop up during select times of the year. These vendors often sell unique charms and souvenirs that can’t be found just anywhere.
Anne Mulaire: Andréanne Mulaire Dandeneau is a well respected Fashion Designer of Metis heritage. Guests can visit her self-named store to admire her work and support her craft. Trust us, you won’t find designs like these anywhere else.
Bison Books: Who couldn’t use a new book to read during plane rides and train commutes? Bison Books has you covered; they’ve got a wide array of more than 20,000 books in stock. Use Bounce to store heavy parcels and extra bags before visiting this unique bookstore.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
