Canadian Museum for Human Rights
While in Winnipeg I had the opportunity to visit the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. It’s seven layers of education and enlightenment.
Everything in the museum is done with purpose including the fact that you start in the bottom which is a darker area and move your way up into areas with more light because it’s a journey of enlightenment.
There were quite a few exhibits centered around Canadians that have made a difference and left their mark when it comes to human rights, but the museum pays homage to heroes around the world.
One of my favorite exhibits was an interactive circle on the floor. When we stood apart we each had our own circle which represents what we believe.
As we got closer to each other the circle wasn’t as defined and we started to merge representing the fact that we learn from each other sharing what we know and believe.
When we all walked close together it burst into this big colorful circle representing that together we can learn and grow and make the world a better place.
You can even climb to the top of the tower of hope and look out across Winnipeg.
While I was there they had a special Nelson Mandela exhibit going on.
They did a great job at telling his story and inspiring others to take a stand for what is right.
We even had a delicious lunch at the ERA Bistro in the Museum. I’d totally recommend the carrot fries and the House Ice Tea (Watermelon Mint).
It was a beautiful experience that I highly recommend to everyone.
