Unique design
Jul. 2020
Built on a Native Gravesite. Human Rights, how contradicting. Unique design, with many useless attributes to it.

Under-whelmed
Jul. 2020
I had heard a lot of people raving about this museum so I attended. The structure is very striking and quite unique from the outside. Unfortunately I was under-whelmed on the inside. Very cold atmosphere wise.

The meditation garden was nothing to either just in it's beginning stages or nothing to see. Just concete blocks to sit on an a stream going by.

The displays are interesting if you have a LOT of time to read everything. The inter-active ones really need someone there to help you operate them.

A must see.
Jul. 2020
I think that everyone visiting and living in Winnipeg should take a Day to enjoy the museum. I found it was more impactful when I visited alone. I had time to stop, read and reflect on what was within the walls.

A Must See!
Mar. 2020
I had watched this amazing building during construction over the years it took to complete. What a unique structure! When it finally opened, my wife and I spent the better part of a day touring the exhibits. This is an fantastic museum, showing many thought provoking historical scenarios. I think a must see for all Canadians.

A must-see for everyone

I have been waiting to see this museum for years and was happy to finally make it there. What an incredible place! As a citizen of the Métis Nation, I appreciated free admission with my citizenship card.

There were no guided tours offered due to COVID, but we were able to download the app to supplement our walk throughout the building. The Indigenous Perspectives was my favourite part of the museum and I wish that it was bigger. Seeing the struggles from every corner of the globe was very moving. Plan for a lot of time when you visit. I was there for three hours and didn’t manage to see everything. The magnitude was a bit overwhelming, and emotionally draining. I will need to plan a return visit to see what I missed this time around. Oh, and the gift shop is lovely! I managed to do a bit of Christmas shopping there.

Canadian Musieum for Human Rights--Worth a Visit to Winnipeg
Aug. 2020
This was a very moving museum, carefully done, with the architecture reinforcing the story or stories inside. It had exhibits on Indigenous issues, the Ukrainian famine, the Nazi/Holocause story, and lgbtq. My only quibble, and it is serious is the controversy they had when they were challenged regardoing the lgbtq. The fact that they tried to "accommodate" this request almost makes a mockery of the whole point of the museum. The community that did not want their children to see this should have been told exactly that--that they will not bend to prejudice no matter what kind of language it is couched in.

boring
Jan. 2020
Boring and not enough artifacts but I guess this is more about people and not so much how they lived. Winnipeg should have spent it's money on an indoor water park and made millions rather than this money pit and lost millions! Many people may not know but I recall reading that it was a known fact that this museum would be operating on a huge yearly deficit before construction even started! What kind of business people thought this made sense! Been once, could care less if I ever go back.

Many better places to see...pass this by.

A propaganda factory. Museum of human ego.
I wouldn’t go again if it were free. More grandstanding and self aggrandizing than anywhere I’ve ever been.
A waste of admission.

Interesting Place to Visit
Jul. 2020
Very impressive building and provided excellent insight into human rights in Canada and through parts of the world. Very thought provoking and highlighted many past, current, and on going human rights issues. To me it is a very unique museum and would recommend to see. Allow approximately 2-3 hours.
