ABOUT THE MUSEUM
The CMHR was the first museum solely dedicated to the “evolution, celebration and future of human rights.” The museum is a member of the Canadian Heritage Portfolio and reports to Parliament through the minister of Canadian heritage.
The CMHR’s mission is to “explore the subject of human rights, with special but not exclusive reference to Canada, to enhance the public’s understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others and to encourage reflection and dialogue.”
The CMHR building is a striking landmark situated at the forks where the Red River and Assiniboine River meet in Winnipeg. The building was designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates and is a “unifying symbol of concepts such as inclusion, freedom, equality and dignity … inspired by Canada’s majestic domain—grasslands, deeply rooted trees, towing mountains, northern lights, snow, icebergs, water and sky.”
