Canadian Museum for Human Rights
As the first museum dedicated to the evolution, celebration, and future of human rights, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a top destination in Winnipeg. Current exhibitions include Mandela: Struggle for Freedom through August 2019, Time to Act: Rohingya Voices through April 2020, and The Spirit Panel Project, which showcases art from Canadian indigenous youth. There are also a number of events that take place at the museum throughout the year, so be on the lookout for one that piques your interest!
Located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, The Forks has served as a meeting place for more than 6,000 years. Indigenous populations once traded at The Forks, followed by European fur traders and railway pioneers, as well as thousands of immigrants. Today, The Forks stands as a recreational, historical, and cultural site. Take a tour that takes you back 6,000 years, or enjoy The Folks Market or CN Stage and Field. Other attractions at The Forks include:
- The Children’s Museum
- Oodena Celebration Circle
- Prairie Garden
- The Forks Historic Port
- Winnipeg Railway Museum
- Splash Dash Tour Boats
- And more!
