Shining a light on Winnipeg, Manitoba
Manitoba’s capital is a mid-sized city with big time appeal. New to Winnipeg is a celebration of Inuit art, Qaumajuq, meaning “it is bright, it is lit” in Inuktitut. This addition to the Winnipeg Art Gallery features 14,000 pieces of Inuit art, many of which are on display in the stunning visible vault.
Go on a journey from darkness to light at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Glowing ramps take you through the galleries’ interactive exhibits. Another fascinating journey happens at the Royal Canadian Mint, a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that transforms raw material into coins for over 75 countries.
While in Winnipeg, visit the Assiniboine Park Zoo to watch polar bears from exhibits that recreate the landscape of Churchill. This northern Manitoba destination is one of the best places in the world to see polar bears and is a top wildlife viewing choice in summer or fall.
