The museum could be better in its displays and more interactivity. I was very disappointed with what I saw. Better Human rights museum in Ottawa. The building itself looks like a Nazi-helmet.

This place should be on your top list to visit... Time well spent for the whole family.. History comes to life as one visits the various galleries. Information compiled reveals events which have shaped the country we live in.

This display features pictures and videos of the struggle for human rights in recent history. It is particularly sympathetic to indigenous peoples, but does not display the abusive behaviours practiced prior to the arrival in North America by caucasians. Nor does it include the 50+...More
