Winnipeg (Canada)/NITN: Winnipeg (Manitoba) based Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) will reopen to fully immunized visitors on Tuesday, July 27.
As part of easing the pandemic restrictions, the province of Manitoba has announced that museums and cultural institutions will be allowed to open at 50 per cent capacity, but only to visitors who have proof they are fully vaccinated (two doses) against COVID-19.
Children under 12 who are not immunized may enter with fully immunized members of their household.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the first museum solely dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights.
The museum, according to its website, aims to explore the subject of human rights, with special but not exclusive reference to Canada, to enhance the public's understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others, and to encourage reflection and dialogue.
A current museum highlight is the Witness Blanket, a monumental artwork by Kwakwaka’wakw and Coast Salish artist Carey Newman.
It is made of more than 800 objects collected from the sites and survivors of Indian residential schools from every region of Canada.
The museum also runs virtual tours which highlight exhibits and architecture.
