Canadian Museum For Human Rights, Winnipeg Reviews

  • It's a beautiful piece of architecture. I'm not really one for museums. It's great if you love history. I found it ok but have no great desire to go back. Tip: keep going until you hit the top. You will be rewarded with a great view. Ramps make it easy to get around if you are in a wheelchair.

  • This Museum was absolutely amazing. As someone who grew up in canada is was extremely interesting and informative. I would suggest that every candida. Citizen visit this beautiful building and watch as many videos as possible. It gives incredibly interesting insights into different cultures and decades. Give yourself at least 4 hours so you can see every station and hidden metaphors but also so you can take the complete journey meant to be taken through all the ramps.

  • Incredible museum. I've been there three times now and every time I see and learn new things. Important parts of history that must not be forgotten. Large number of interactive exhibits and the content can be adapted to just about any age group. Be sure to make your way up to the tower at the end of your visit for breath-taking views of the Forks and surrounding area.

  • The theme of the museum is exceptionally relevant. They expose and discuss Human Rights as a historical event, worldwide agreement, and very importantly as a facet of the Canadian journey. I went with a close friend, and we spent hours discussing where both humanity as a whole, and specifically Canada, have been going in terms of human rights. The relaxation garden was wonderful for a moment of silence and calm, and the view of Winnipeg from the tower was breathtaking. Keep in mind, while technically of easy access, there are plenty of long walks up ramps. I'd like to see more temporary exhibits in the future.

  • It's good to come soon as the museum opens in the morning at 9:45 and take your time throughout the day. You are allowed to leave at lunch and come back if you want with the same ticket. There are volunteers who greet you at the door and also give you information and tips for your visit. There is a complimentary coat check and you can borrow wheel chairs and strollers from them. There is more than 100 hours of just the video exhibits fully subtitled in English French and ASL. If you live in Winnipeg you should definitely get a membership because it is valid for the whole year and is only the price of 3 visits. Basically you get 365 visits for the cost of 3. You cannot do the museum in one go but if you are really sort on time, there is a discounted rate after 4 since the museum closes at 5 and on Wednesdays the museum is $5 after 5. The first Wednesday of the month is free after 5 and the museum is closed on Mondays. I hope this review helps and you decide to visit this wonderful place. Even the kids will enjoy it because it's not a "dusty old place" the architecture is modern and it's a place of ideas rather than old artifacts. Ask for the family scavenger hunt for some fun 😊.
