You now have more hours in a day to visit Winnipeg’s Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
Starting this week, the museum will be open until 8 p.m. every Wednesday.
“Evening hours will help us serve a portion of the population that may not have time during the day or on the weekend, or those who wish to see the Museum in a different light,” said Gail Stephens, CMHR interim president and CEO.
This Wednesday will also signal the start of free admission from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on that day only. Beginning in February, the first Wednesday evening of each month will be free.
During the evening of Wednesday, January 21, visitors to the museum can also participate in a free public event at 7 p.m. featuring a panel discussion about the media’s role during the Holodomor famine-genocide in Ukraine during the 1930s. Admission fees will still apply on that day for entry to the galleries.
