  • Stayed for three hours in this unique museum and found it quite fascinating and relevant, especially in a country that is trying to make amends for its human rights past. There's plenty of stories to tell, from many parts of the world, by people with human rights issues, notably women, ethnic and sexual minorities, and children. The stories are a mix of despair and hope. The museum also lets visitors think about the little ways they might be contributing to a human rights abuse - from drinking coffee harvested by marginalized workers and using phones with raw material sourced from war zones in Africa. The museum is housed in a beautiful building with modern architecture. Aside from elevators, the different floors are connected by ramps, making for another unique experience. The highest floor in the museum, called Tower of Hope, offers magnificent views of downtown Winnipeg.
  • An absolutely spectacular museum! Maybe the best I've ever been to. The exhibits catch your eye with their unique artistic designs. The content itself is inspiring, tragic and beautiful all at the same time. The best part is that they stick to their message. The gift shop sells fair trade items, the exhibits are in both French and English (to more of a degree than I've seen even in Quebec) and each video has a person using sign language. It's truly a must-see in Winnipeg.
  • Winnipeg has another crown jewel. The Canadian Museum for Human rights is a spectacular showcase of man's inhumanity to man, yet it is full of hope and promise. Every inch of the gorgeous building has been painstakingly produced to tell stories in an interactive and thought provoking way. You will leave a better person than when you came. Do yourself a favour and take the tour.
  • Exceptional museum. Spectacularly beautiful architecture and exhibits. Very lavish yet conducive to quiet learning and contemplation. It was a privilege to visit this important place. I recommend it to anyone.
  • The architecture and design of the building is part of the story-telling and journey you go through at this incredible and unique museum. The exhibits are also beautifully and thoughtfully designed. You must go here if you are in Winnipeg - give yourself at least 3-4 hours, if not more to explore. It can be a very emotional and "heavy" experience some.
