The Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Where: Winnipeg, Manitoba

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights deals, unsurprisingly, with some very difficult topics. So it is testament to the design of the building, the interpretation of the objects, and the staff themselves, that the visitor leaves with a sense of hopefulness, rather than desperation. The architecture of the building leads the visitor from the darkness of galleries dealing with the depths of human experience, up to the light and hopefulness of civil rights movements and moves to building a better world. The real star of the show, however, are the incredibly welcoming staff – some of the friendliest I have ever met (in the thousand, thousand museums I have visited!). Make sure you go.
