Canadian Museum For Human Rights, Winnipeg Reviews - Write a Review
If you're a first time visitor, I strongly suggest to attend the building on a Wednesday evening. When you get to the top of the museum you can experience a 360 degree view of the city and a backdrop of the lights that dance across the forks and city areas from the view top. It is beautiful. Now you can only experience that when the sun sets before their closing times, this view will not apply during summer hours. Expect to spend at least 3-4 hours to take in all the floors and it's information. If you know your true physical stats and take in more than 12,000 steps a day then you will have no trouble making it to the top using the stairs. No shame in taking the elevator, it is there for everyone's use.
Wow!!!! That's all I can say. What an amazing display of History. Had a short 30-minute private tour but enough to make me want to go back again and again. I cannot imagine how much money has been spent to put this awesome display on for the public and anyone to see. I was so impressed with how they made it so accessible for everyone including people with disabilities. Way to go Winnipeg, way to go Manitoba, way to go Canada!!!
Wonderful experience. The museum did a great job collecting pieces of history related to human right violations. I wouldn't suggest trying to do the entire museum in one trip it's heavy very emotive stuff. Wished there was more on Canada's indigenous ppl and let's face it, it's not a complete collection of the atrocities we have committed against each other but a good start. Loved the use of technology on all the floors as well as the child friendly learning enhancement tools that were scattered throughout the tour.
The Canadian Human Rights Museum at the Forks is an exceptional institution. It is a museum with remarkably few physical objects on display compared to an art gallery or the Manitoba Museum. The key items are ideas and concepts, with physical objects supporting the experience and understanding of the "displays". It uses the latest in digital tech to allow you to experience the stories and history of a sociological evolution. Even the building's odd shape and layout is part of the delivery mechanism, taking you on a journey through its message.
A great museum with very educational displays good for the whole family. Very unique architecture. Definitely take a group tour as it helps orient yourself and gives a very good overview of what to see and background on many of the displays.
