Owner description: The Grey Nuns' convent, Winnipeg's oldest building, houses Le Musee de Saint-Boniface Museum. Built for the Grey Nuns who arrived in the Red River Colony in 1844, the structure is an outstanding example of Red River frame construction. The Museum presents an impressive collection of artifacts that reveal the lives and culture of the Francophone and Metis communities of Manitoba, including a special exhibit about Louis Riel, the "father" of Manitoba. ~ Le couvent des Soeurs Grises, le plus vieil edifice de Winnipeg, heberge le Musee de Saint-Boniface. Construit pour accueillir les Soeurs Grises qui arriverent dans la colonie de la Riviere-Rouge en 1844, il s'agit d'un merveilleux exemple de construction a ossature-bois dite « de la Riviere-Rouge ». Le Musee expose sa collection impressionnante d'objets representatifs de la vie et de la culture des communautes francophone et metisse du Manitoba. Mentionnons, a titre d'exemple, son exposition speciale sur Louis Riel, le « pere » du Manitoba.
