The Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Inspiring Encounters

The world’s first national museum dedicated to the evolution, celebration, and future of human rights, the museum is a national and international destination. As an “idea” museum, it begins with a concept, not a collection – a center of learning where Canadians and people from around the world can engage in discussion and commit to taking action against hate and oppression. Ground breaking approaches use multimedia, digital interaction, build exhibits, images, film, art and performance to encourage reflection and dialogue connecting visitors to human rights.
