  • Beautiful building with stunning architecture and green spaces outside. Missed the free tours but there are free self-guide booklets by the entrance, which I was not made aware of by the staff. I only found out when I visited the gift shop at the end of my visit. There is a restaurant inside but is only open until 3:00 pm.

  • A Manitoba gem ! The building and gardens are a great piece of the downtown. The Golden Boy !

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.
