This national museum invites visitors of all ages and abilities to explore and reflect on human rights in Canada and around the world.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a Design Quarter Winnipeg member because A visitor's journey through the Canadian Museum for Human Rights has been described as architecture embodying the human quest; progressing from ground to sky, darkness to light - a metaphor for the struggle toward fully realized human rights for all.
The visionary building is a unifying symbol of concepts such as inclusion, accessibility, freedom, equality and dignity - ideas that have inspired Canadians to strive for human rights. Inspired by Canada's majestic natural domain - grasslands, deeply rooted tress, towering mountains, northern lights, snow, icebergs, water and sky - architect Antoine Predock's masterful design is evocative of numerous natural elements.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is also a Design Quarter Event Venue!
