Archi10 is a free bilingual app that works as a self-guided tour, sharing information about Winnipeg’s built environment. The app synchronizes with Winnipeg Transit Route #10, which passes by some of Winnipeg’s most significant buildings located in three important neighbourhoods: Wolseley, Downtown, and St. Boniface. When near selected places of interest, the narrators alert users and describe the buildings. Original music created specifically for these urban landscapes accompanies the user throughout the ride. While the app is tailored for use on the bus, it is also a handy resource that can be used at any time. Available on the Apple store and Google Play.
WAF has developed a series of digital self-guided tours which may be found at winnipegarchitecture.ca/tours. For several of the tours there are also printed copies for sale.
WAF offers a variety of free walking and bicycle tours throughout the year. Dates and times are posted on the website.
