A museum that will change your mind
Winnipeg is full of surprising spaces, amazing food and lively activities. But almost every visit has one thing in common: a trip to the world-class Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Designed to inspire and uplift, you’ll leave this new national museum feeling hope for the future. And if that’s not enough, here are three more reasons to visit:
As a modern ideas museum, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights mixes the latest technology with the oldest form of communication – storytelling. Hand motions activate games and videos about people taking action for a better world. Colourful light-bubble projections show us the power of inclusion. A 360-degree theatre relays Indigenous perspectives on rights and responsibilities. You'll never think about museums in the same way again!
Canada's most beautiful building reflects human rights concepts in every aspect of its design. Sprouting from massive, concrete roots at the forks of two rivers, the Museum rises from the Prairie earth as an abstract mountain surrounded by a sparkling glass cloud. Look again and the cloud becomes the folded wings of a dove beneath a glowing beacon of hope. Inside, a journey from darkness to light takes visitors thought seven levels of galleries on illuminated alabaster ramps, ending in a sunlit tower for panoramic views of the city.
How did a prom dress challenge racial segregation? Why is the Indian Residential School system considered to be genocide? What's the story behind the brave woman on Canada's new $10 bill? How does standing up to a bully promote human rights? The Museum shines a light in dark corners and tells stories of people around the world whose actions created positive change – inspiring visitors to make a difference in their own unique way.
Start planning your visit of inspiration! The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and until 9 p.m. on Fridays (with free admission the first Friday evening of each month). Visit humanrights.ca for the latest news on exhibits and events.
