The Living Prairie Museum is a 12 hectare (30acre) tall grass prairie preserve located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

It was set aside in 1968 as a preserve is home to over 160 species of prairie plants and a great array of prairie wildlife. In Manitoba only 1/20th of 1% of original tall grass prairie remains.

The Living Prairie Museum is one of the few preserves of this once vast ecosystem. This museum is defined by the historical interpretation of the Tall Grass Prairie of the Winnipeg Region. The museum has an interpretative centre with displays on prairie history and ecology. The museum sponsors an artist in residence.
