  • This place is a walking distance from The Fork. A very impressive building from an architecture view and waste of space. The exhibitions are interesting and the narrative are detail. It is a nice...

  • The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the coolest wedding venue ever! As a wedding photographer, I've shot at some amazing places, but nothing compares to the stunning architecture and breathtaking views at this museum. The natural light pours into the space, making every shot look absolutely magical. And the staff are like wedding ninjas, making sure every detail is perfect and every guest is happy. They truly go above and beyond to ensure everyone has an amazing time. But what really sets the Canadian Museum for Human Rights apart is the feeling you get when you're there. It's hard to describe, but every bride and groom I've worked with have said the same thing - they feel like they're getting married in the coolest place ever. Maybe it's the modern design or the unique exhibits, but there's just something about this museum that makes it feel special. If you want a wedding venue that's not only beautiful but also unforgettable, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the perfect choice.
  • It's an eye-opening experience. I learned so much in just a short amount of time. My partner had been reluctant to come with me ("it sounds boring"), but even he was intrigued and wanted to stay longer once we were there. The booths and exhibits have a lot of variety, as well as really important information about history you might've never heard before. Aside from that, the museum has a really unique design and layout, making it a really memorable, unforgettable experience.
  • The Canadian Museum for Human Rights was a powerful and well laid out exhibit. Each room had a dedicated person to help navigate and provide additional information. The information on the main displays was plain (in a good way) so it would be accessible to people from different age ranges and backgrounds. It also had several languages available to choose from. More in-depth information could be found on terminals all through the museum. The building itself was a beautiful universal design. My husband and I walked the whole thing bottom to top, even reaching the top of the tower. It was a lot bigger than we expected so budget at least a few hours if you’re someone like me who reads everything.
  • It's an intriguing space, but the walk is tricky. I feel like there is both too much info and not enough at the same time. I just think it feels disjointed as an exhibit, with no sense of cohesion in the narrative. If that was the goal, then it's spot on. I did like the Holodomor exhibit and the Ukrainian tribute. It's appreciated.
  • What a beautiful and amazing experience. The education is off the charts. Gorgeous building. Amazing and friendly staff
