This is a must visit when you are in Winnipeg. You will need a full day and be prepared to have it affect your emotions. I was depressed after I learned how our country treated Japanese and First Nation people in our history.

There is a lot of information to take in. I would suggest limiting your 1st visit to 2 hours or less, otherwise it takes a toll on your soul. Great information for sure!
