Winnipeg: What To Do And Where To Go?


Winnipeg is being appreciated from a long time for its excellent cultural and arts scene. On my visit, I discovered that the resident enjoys an active cultural life. You can visit concerts, ballets, and operas. Believe me, it is the most underrated city in Canada. Here are some of the best things that you can do on your trip to Winnipeg.

  • The Forks

The place where the Assiniboine and Red Rivers join, you will find an entertainment and shopping district called the Forks. It had once been home to the railway repair facility and with time, many buildings have been restored to make room for interesting restaurants, shops, and museums. At Forks Market, you will find vegetable and fruit sellers in the main hall. I tasted the food cooked by the food vendors and I have to say that it was fresh and delicious. Go up the tower in order to get a bird’s eye view of the whole city.

  • Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a new addition to the cultural scene of Winnipeg and has become a modern landmark that reflects human rights. It is popular for its incredible design and exclusive concept that present the stories of human rights. There are seven levels and 11 galleries. No doubt, it is a significant cultural institution of Canada.

  • The Manitoba Museum

It is mainly devoted to the natural and human history of Canada. I found the nine galleries displaying the best of what Canada has to offer. I was mesmerized by the display of the vastness of the sky by the Science Gallery and Planetarium.

  • Assiniboine Park and Zoo

Assiniboine is the oldest park that I came across in Winnipeg. The zoo of this park is located inside the ground and you will find a wide array of animals in here. Another attraction of the park is the steam train and Leo Mol Sculpture Garden.
