WINNIPEG — Visitors to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights now know how much they can expect to pay for admission.

Once open in September, the CMHR will charge $15 for adults, $8 for youth (aged seven to 17), and $12 for students and seniors. Children under seven will be admitted free and a family of six or less can enter for $42. All prices include tax.

“We’ve developed a rate structure that delivers high value for all visitors to this unique, world-class museum,” said Jacques Lavergne, CMHR director of earned revenue and visitor services. “Our prices are designed to be comparable to other national museums and aligned with local attractions.

Frequent visitors can purchase a family membership for $95.

The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday, and closed on Mondays. A free-admission evening will be offered on the first Wednesday of every month, starting in January 2015.

“We are excited about the opening of the CMHR as it will open new markets, stimulate increased visitation and elevate Winnipeg’s image as a city of human rights education,” said Tourism Winnipeg senior vice-president Chantal Sturk-Nadeau.

She added prices have been set at a level that will enable tourism partners and travel trade companies to effectively market the museum, Winnipeg and Manitoba as a global destination.
