The Canadian Museum for Human Rights construction site is a sight in itself, and the building isn’t even complete yet. Construction is currently underway at The Forks, and now officials are offering the public a chance to participate in a tour of the building’s perimeter.

“This is a terrific opportunity for Winnipeggers and visitors to the city to watch first hand as this iconic building literally grows from the ground up,” said Stuart Murray, president and chief executive officer of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. “It’s an opportunity for people to ask questions about the construction project and to better understand how this architectural marvel is being built.”

Visitors will be guided on a tour and be provided with an inside look at the global institution that will soon redefine Winnipeg’s skyline.

The tours are on now until August 29, 2010 and will be given in both English and French. The free tours run roughly 45 minutes and begin at the Explore Manitoba Centre at The Forks.

For more information or to reserve a spot on a tour, contact the CMHR at 984-1731 or e-mail tours@humanrightsmuseum.ca.
