I took a few hours out of my itinerary to visit this museum on a recent trip to Winnipeg. Now I’m kicking myself for not having visited before. The building itself is beautiful, meaningful and fitting for the exhibits housed within. The museum is laid...More

This is worth a trip to Winnipeg. After two hours, we really were emotionally exhausted and it would be better to do it over two pieces of two hours each. I have read and seen multiple movies on the subject of Residential Schools and the...More
