  • Built on a Native Gravesite. Human Rights, how contradicting. Unique design, with many useless attributes to it.  more »
  • I had heard a lot of people raving about this museum so I attended. The structure is very striking and quite unique from the outside. Unfortunately I was under-whelmed on the inside. Very cold...  more »
  • Really excellent place to visit. Need several hours or even whole day to really appreciate all the exhibits. New facility, very well-maintained. Friendly professional staff. Entry fee is probably somewhat of a barrier to many people. Would be nice if all Canadians can have one free entry per year.
  • Very educational and there are interactive elements. I loved the different exhibits and the fact that the museum tried to capture a number of human rights atrocities. The voting activity where we are presented with a case and asked to vote on questions that were real considerations of the people involved, was really the best part. It is a great thinking piece and opportunity for discussion. You can also go to the top, look out at a great view.
