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.

First off there is the Nelson Mandela Exhibit. Absolutely amazing. Shows you how cruel and terrible oppression can be just because you have a different ethnicity. Then the other floors have descriptions of other states that oppressed their people. It is very interesting and soul searching. Each exhibit is clearly described and explained. Well worth the three hours it takes to see everything. Lots of reading but very worth it. Then the view from the 8th floor is quite spectacular.

Very very interesting museum! Very focused on the holocaust but it gives great insight in to other historical events as well. Don’t expect to be able to read it all in one shot! I’ve gone back several times and seen different parts every time. It’s fairly interactive but a decent amount of reading.

Well worth your time when visiting Winnipeg. The museum's content is excellent and not your usual collection of artifacts in display case. The temporary exhibit on Nelson Mandela was really good. Spent 3 hours but could have spent more to cover all the content. My two teenage daughters also found the museum to be a worthwhile experience. Location at The Forks enables you to see both as part of one stop.
