Canadian Museum For Human Rights, Winnipeg Reviews
An Incredible "thought provoking" Museum. This Museum, one of only two National museums located outside the National Capital Region, focuses on many aspects of Human Rights issues-- not only in the "Canadian setting" but also "internationally". It also looks at the many issues from an Historical as well as the Current perspective! The building, and its ("Red Riverside location"), are both remarkable and breath-taking! In addition to the permanent exhibits, [many of which have an "interactive component"], there are also "special exhibits". Currently [summer of 2018] the Nelson Mandela/South African exhibit is featured. It is indeed very worthwhile to visit while in Winnipeg. I hope that this Review has been helpful.
Rightfully so, this place is HUGE with quite a story to tell. The guides there are very courteous and willing to answer any questions that you have -- you can tell that they genuinely want you to enjoy your visit. -If you are concerned about bringing small children: they do try to present information in a way that is captivating for young crowds. Many pieces are hung up to be eye-catching for all ages, but they also make good use of lights and sound to present other information as well. TL;DR: Honestly I thought it would be boring because it was a museum, but I had a great time and kind of wanted to stay longer to observe more.
Love love love.. like many others while this was being built I thought it was a horrendous waste of money. Now having being there probably 7 or 8 times I would highly recommend this to anybody. It is very humbling to go in there and realize that people before us have been through such hardships. Some of it's a bit hard to swallow but I think is a human being it's a necessity for us to know about. I love it there. Cannot recommend it enough. And the architecture is beautiful
Have been here twice now, and have done the guided tour each time (would for sure recommend that). The building has so many subtle additions to the design that hint at culture and history I would not have caught or understood otherwise. Something I would say locals and tourists both enjoy. Very happy to see that there is a place which recognises the atrocities of the past, and shows us what we can hope for in the future.
I can speak only on the appearance of the building, the parking, and the general level of interest I had in doing the exhibits inside. I’ve visited this organization for business and not for enlightenment so I did not have the chance to walk through the entire place. The building is gorgeous.I’m not sure if it’s made from Manitoba-famous Tyndall stone, but it looks like it. From ground to spire the building looks like a giant stone and glass ice cream cone. Quite breathtaking architecture. The inside was kept very clean, and seemed to employ a plethora of multiracial employees each of whom more friendly and helpful than the last, and fluently bilingual. Some parts of the building, the parts that I saw, are remarkably open and fresh. Vast spaces of air from the floor to the ceiling, and the walls to the glass. Based on how beautiful they kept the offices (The parts that aren’t seen by general-admission visitors) I have to speculate that the curators for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights have their presentation dialled in pretty tight. I was there on a Friday morning and parking was ample and quite cheap. With one day of parking, you can probably stay busy all day with Winnipeg’s world famous The Forks being so close, as well as Saint Boniface just across the bridge.
