Canadian Museum for Human Rights
The face of Winnipeg is undergoing a significant change – the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is opening to the world in 2014 and its impact will be felt around the world. Meetings or conventions coming to Winnipeg will have the privilege of visiting Canada’s fifth National Museum, the first National Museum established since 1967, and the first ever built outside of Canada’s National Capital region. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights will be an international destination, further enhancing Winnipeg’s reputation as the “2010 Cultural Capital of Canada”.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is an "idea" Museum, with a goal to bring people together from around the world, enhancing the understanding of human rights, promoting respect for others and encouraging reflection and dialogue.
The Museum’s meeting spaces and exhibitions will be of special interest to convention and meeting organizers and participants, focused on human rights, academic, museological, architectural and other themes. It will play a significant influential role in drawing groups and major events to Winnipeg– as it transforms Winnipeg into a Human Rights destination for all.
