Canadian Museum For Human Rights and its collection

Canadian Museum For Human Rights

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a cultural history museum situated in Winnipeg, the capital city of the Canadian province of Manitoba. It is the only national museum of Canada located outside of the capital, Ottawa. The museum was built between 2008 and 2012 and officially opened on September 19, 2014.

Design of the Museum

The design of the museum was chosen through a competition. The winning design was by Antoine Predock, an architect from Albuquerque in New Mexico. The design concept involves ascending from the roots, the underground parts of the museum, into the Tower of Hope, which offers a view of Winnipeg.

Exhibitions at the Museum

The museum's twelve galleries focus on various aspects of human rights. They place a special emphasis on the persecution of Jews and the First Nations, but also include other persecuted minorities such as Ukrainians, Japanese, Italians, and Germans who were mistreated during the World Wars. The museum also addresses global human rights issues, not just events in Canada.
