We had our fourth visit to the Canadian Human Rights Museum and it continues to amaze us. We took advantage of visiting the Mandela exhibit and learned and experienced some of what it must have been like in South Africa Appartite times.

Don't get me wrong but if there was not the free entry oncw a month I would probabli regret the money. The building is amzing and way more interresting then exhibition itself. View from the tower splended.

Really excellent place to visit. Need several hours or even whole day to really appreciate all the exhibits. New facility, very well-maintained. Friendly professional staff. Entry fee is probably somewhat of a barrier to many people. Would be nice if all Canadians can have one...More
