You can’t go inside yet, but the Canadian Museum for Human Rights will host numerous outdoor activities for Winnipeggers on Canada Day.
To celebrate the country’s 147th birthday, the museum will hold free public tours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. The tours will last approximately 30 minutes and depart from the CHMR’s Canada Day booth behind the museum near the Esplanade Riel.
The outdoor tours will examine the history of human rights, including French language rights and Indigenous treaty rights, and include a discussion about the CMHR and its architecture.
From July 1-7, the CMHR will help raise awareness of the people and events that have shaped the nation from a human rights perspective — and their connection to the content of the new national museum
The museum officially opens on September 20.
