Canadian Museum for Human Rights Changes Winnipeg's Skyline

The new Canadian Museum for Human Rights has changed Winnipeg’s skyline once more. It’s been a decade now since the Esplanade Riel Bridge was completed and offered onlookers a very different look of the city skyline from the east end. The two major ‘architectural wonders’ are situated on either side of the famous Red River, linking downtown Winnipeg with St. Boniface, Canada’s largest francophone community outside Quebec.

 

Construction of the exterior of the building is nearly complete. Work on the exhibits has now begun and by the end of this summer, the landscaping should be in place.  Everything should be completed for the grand opening in 2014!
