Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba, grew from a small prairie trading town into a bustling city filled with shopping, dining and plenty of outdoor space. Situated at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, the city’s rich history dates back 6,000 years as people have always been drawn here for a sense of community and trade. Guests of our Winnipeg hotels can immerse themselves in the city’s array of art galleries, museums and attractions perfectly suited for adults and children alike.
When in Winnipeg, don’t miss the Forks National Historic Site. Sitting on 54 acres, you can find some of Winnipeg’s greatest attractions, including trails, a waterpark, a market, top-notch dining and more. Indulge your wild side at Assiniboine Park Zoo, where polar bears are the main attraction. If museums peak your interest, be sure to stop at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which showcases exhibits designed to create discussion around change for a better world. The Manitoba Museum is the perfect place to brush up on local history, including galleries with everything from dinosaurs to a planetarium and even artifacts from the Hudson Bay Company.
If getting artsy is on your agenda, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is a must-see. With almost 24,000 pieces containing a lot of Canadian-focused art and artists, there are plenty of exhibits to see. The WAG even houses the largest collection of contemporary Inuit art. To see stunning 20th century architecture, the Exchange District National Historic Site is 30 blocks’ worth of beautiful buildings and trendy Winnipeg culture. From shops to galleries, bistros and more, there really is something for everyone here.
