WINNIPEG — After a flashy grand opening ceremony last week, it will still be several more weeks before the public can fully experience the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Museum officials on Wednesday said, while their plan was to completely open by this Saturday, that won’t be the case.

Only five of the museum’s 11 galleries are complete. That’s one more than during a media preview tour one week ago.

The remainder of the galleries are expected to be complete by November 11.

From September 27 to November 9, visits to the museum will be conducted through guided tours. Two tours will be available, beginning with the Discover the Building tour in the morning, and Explore the Galleries tour in the afternoon. Each tour costs $10 for adults, $5 for children aged 7 to 17, and is free for children under 7.

The 90-minute tours will run every 15 minutes beginning at 10 a.m.
