Even though it’s one of the newest icons in the city, CMHR has solidified its landmark status. Before you journey into the museum’s underground entrance, step back and marvel at the curved slopes and the unusual angles of the Cloud, made of 1,669 custom-cut pieces of glass.
Step inside and reflect on the multi-sensory exhibits exploring human rights concepts, wind your way up the lit-white alabaster ramps until your journey culminates in the glass Tower of Hope, providing a panoramic view of downtown, The Forks, and St. Boniface.
