Canadian Museum For Human Rights, Winnipeg Reviews

  • The omission of any mention of the illegal occupation of Palestinian lands by Israeli settlers is telling. This is not a public institution, but a privately funded vanity project for the rich Zionists that make up the Asper family. Do not give them your money, visit on the free day and be done with it. You can get it done in like an hour, which is great. There are some interesting exhibits and I did leard a few things. The building is beautiful, and perhaps one of the few interesting architectural features of the city. However, the exhibits featured could use more breadth outside of Canada..

  • Ok, I didn't care to go after years of conflicting opinions. I ended up going with a visiting family member and thought it was incredible. Not only is the building spectacular but the information is presented in an elegant, interactive and captivating way. Pardon my bluntness but way less boring and depressing than expected. Don't get me wrong, you will leave feeling appropriately sad, it's horrifying how people have been and are currently treated. I'm just saying they did the best possible job making this as dynamic as they could. World class quality, awesome gift shop, it's a 2 trip or 6 hour visit and they have good food. Great wedding venue.

  • The price is really reasonable. The building is spectacular! We did the 90 min tour which was more like 120 mins. Everyone in the group agreed to the extension. It did not feel like two hours went by. Planning on going back someday to go through the exhibits more thoroughly.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this incredible museum. We allowed ourselves 4 hours to tour the museum and quickly realized we needed much more time. There is tons of information to take in, all of it fascinating and incredibly delivered in thoughtful and detailed displays. The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Even with the heavy subject manner, our kids enjoyed the museum as well, with most information easily digested (save for the entire floor focusing on genocide). The architecture of the museum is breathtaking at every turn. The glass roof top, glass elevator and look out point at the top of the building were all greatly enjoyed as well and offer an incredible 360° view of Winnipegs downtown and beyond. To top it all off the restaurant inside the museum had very friendly wait staff, and really really good food with prices on the high end of average (about $15 for the best chicken club sandwhich Ive ever had and a side salad). Overall a positive experience I was glad to have exposed our family to. Wear comfortable shoes, lots of walking!

  • 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.
