    This building is beautiful and it is worth paying the $18 entry fee just to check out the fine architecture that the building holds. However, as far as a museum experience goes, this is more of an int...  more »

    Ample parking. Gorgeous building inside and out. Only gripe is the lack of things to do inside. Lots to see and read. But I felt there could be more. 18$ admission per adult. Worth checking out if you haven't been but would like to see more exhibits!

    Very interesting place. Thought provoking. I would recommend the guided tour. Stunning building. Note, they don't allow you to carry backpacks or bags so you must check them in (no charge) to the cloakroom. They don't feel you that it's mandatory until you go to enter the exhibition area.

    Incredible! I think I actually verbalized, 'This place is amazing,' each time I reached one of the building's 7 floors. The building itself is a work of art, the exhibitions are immersive, vast, and powerful. To cover such dark history in the manner they've managed is so unbelievable, I couldn't help but be taken aback. My only critique, especially given it's location on Earth, is that it could stand to have way more depth in the historic mistreatment of Canada's First Nations. Other than that, we spent three hours here and found it riveting and poignant!

    Beautiful museum touching on the history and progress for marginalised groups in Canada and worldwide. The building is absolutely gorgeous. I recommend arriving by 2 pm so you have enough time. We felt a little rushed with slightly over 2 hours. It is definitely not geared toward children but would be appropriate for children who can read well and are ready for more sensitive topics like the Holocaust.

    Breathtaking architecture and physical use of space allows room to process the past and present struggles for human rights, framed from a Canadian perspective. Multimedia and interactive displays are carefully curated and add significant depth. Not your typical museum experience.

Where to stay in Winnipeg

For easy access to entertainment, look north of Downtown to the hip Exchange District--here you'll find some of the city's most pleasant historical architecture, as well as its most happening bar scene. If you want to mingle with the city's hipsters, stay in the leafy riverfront suburb of Wolseley, where organic markets and "fair trade" cafes abound. If you're just planning to visit Winnipeg for a night or two, you can find a range of accommodations close to the airport.
