With less than a month to go before the Canadian Museum for Human Rights opens, the public will have the chance to take part in free preview tours.
Tickets will be available online beginning September 3 for the one-hour guided tours, providing up to 9,000 people with a glimpse inside the national museum in Winnipeg September 20 and 21. Regular paid admissions begin on September 27.
The tickets will allow access to four of the museum’s 11 galleries on a time-ticketed basis as part of opening celebrations.
The tours will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 20 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 21. Although admission is free, tickets will be issued with specific tour times to help manage line-ups and reduce waits.
The full opening weekend festivities lineup will be unveiled on Thursday.
