Winnipeg

Have a capital time in a vibrant city in the frontier

Winnipeg, Manitoba’s capital and the region’s largest city, is the historical and cultural center of Manitoba with its first-rate museums, art galleries and annual festivals. A historic meeting place, The Forks National Historic Site is an urban oasis in the heart of Winnipeg. Canada’s oldest public gallery, Winnipeg Art Gallery, includes the world’s largest public collection of Inuit art.

The Exchange District National Historic Site showcases turn-of-the-last-century architecture and is home to an arts community. The Manitoba Museum is an award-winning heritage and “edutainment” center in addition to its Planetarium and Science Gallery.

Learn about the production of coins while touring the Royal Canadian Mint. Pass over Esplanade Riel Pedestrian Bridge and you’re in St. Boniface, home to a large francophone community and the birthplace of Louis Riel, the Métis leader who founded Manitoba.
