  • I had heard about this museum designed by Predock, and was so glad to have a couple of hours to visit. Timeline of major events in human rights was fascinating. Great videos with most exhibits. Delici...  more »

  • The content is not subjective at all... They are writing history the way they want... faking facts... no mention of Israeli genocide and war crimes against Palestinian people... No mention of how Israeli settlers killed children and women and occupied their lands... no mention what Israeli army is still doing until now... never give them your money... Go on the free day... I will send an official complaint to the local and federal government...
  • What an amazing place to spend a day at, different from what I expected. The staff exceptional, friendly and knowledgeable. I did two tours, one basic informational and the other with a Spiritual flavor of the Indigenous peoples. Both were wonderful experience and I'd recommend both. An absolute must visit!
  • Do you really want to get your mind working. This venue is very thought provoking. Go as a group and share your own observations of stories you have heard or witnessed. Made me feel so thankful for all those who have contributed in so many ways. Very "PROUD WINNIPEGER" The building and lines glass and levels are a treat in itself...felt very blessed.
  • 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.
