Museum of Human Rights

The Canadian Museum of Human Rights is Winnipeg's newest major attraction and an important addition to Canada's national museums.

Many years in the making, the structure containing the museum is a unique, standout building with a design based on the Canadian landscape.

The museum focuses on a variety of themes that tell the stories of human rights issues from different perspectives.

Determining which stories would be told became the source of much tension and controversy during the planning stages; an indication of how important this museum is to so many people.
