This was an unexpected pleasure...we found it an informative and inspiring place, even with some of the humbling experiences that Canada has experienced (perpetrated) in its history. Winnipeggers should feel extremely proud of this gem of a museum.

Engrossing and raw. Lots to see, read, hear and experience. Heavy and hard to face, but important history to learn from. The building is one of a kind and beautiful to explore. For me, the museum would be best viewed over a few days. Helpful,...More

The building and the thought process put into the architecture is best learned during a guided tour. The exhibits, while thought-provoking, are sometimes too reliant on digital presentation. The exhibits with actual physical specimens were more meaningful in my opinion. It's definitely an amazing building...More

We were impressed with all aspects of our visit. Starting with the architecture which was explained by our tour guide, to the numerous displays, great thought went into developing how to get the message across. And it works. We can not stand idly by as...More

I can't help but wonder if the building which houses the Canadian Museum for Human Rights was designed first, and with carte blanche given to the architect, then the museum kind of crammed into the spaces as an afterthought. It's an interesting building, though feeling...More

We visited the museum for about 2 hours which was not quite enough but it was well worth it. I particularly liked the building and layout of the museum. Would love to come back.

Their webpage says. "Free first Wednesday of each month. 5 to 9 pm. " Always Free for Aboriginal, Metis, Inuit. You should go. Plan for 3 to 4 hours. It's a spectacular building. Learn about Izzy Asper's Legacy.
