The Canadian Human Rights Museum- A Work Still in Progress

The new Canadian Human Rights Museum is just a few blocks from my home. I was going through old photos and realized that after we moved to Winnipeg in 2011, I had taken pictures of the Human Rights Museum a number of times as it was being built. It was interesting to see the progress.

I have yet to visit the museum, since I would like to wait till the exhibits are all complete, something they are predicting for mid November. Plenty of controversy has surrounded the building of the museum and continues to do so with the recent announcement the chief executive officer of the museum has been asked to leave.  It appears the museum is still a work in progress.

There is no question however that the building which houses the museum is a piece of iconic architecture which adds something very unique to the Winnipeg skyline.
