With just over three months to go before it officially opens, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights has set its admission price structure and operating hours schedule.

A visit to Canada’s newest national museum will cost an adult $15 (taxes included), youth admission (ages 7-17) will be $8, and children under the age of 7 will be free.

The student and senior rate is $12, while a family of six (or less) can enter for $42.

CMHR officials believe this pricing table is comparable to a number of visitor attractions in Winnipeg.

"We've developed a rate structure that delivers high value for all visitors to this unique, world-class museum," CMHR director of earned revenue and visitor services Jacques Lavergne said in a statement. "Our prices are designed to be comparable to other national museums and aligned with local attractions.

"For the cost of a night at the movies or pizza for the family, visitors can experience a journey of inspiration unlike anything they've seen before, inside one of the most stunning buildings in Canada."

The pricing structure is in line to the other national museums in the country. The Canadian Museum of History and the Canadian War Museum charge $14.69 for an adult admission, while the National Gallery of Canada and the Canada Science and Technology Museum cost $12. All four of those museums are located in Ottawa.

As far as Winnipeg attractions go, an adult admission to CMHR is slightly more than the Winnipeg Art Gallery ($12), and the Manitoba Museum ($9), but less than a visit to the Assiniboine Park Zoo ($19.43, starting July 3).

CMHR is also offering memberships for individuals, couples and families.

Adult memberships are $50 per year, students and seniors are $35, a senior couple (65 and older) is $60, an adult couple is $90, and a family membership is (up to eight family members with a maximum two adults) is $95.

The membership program is scheduled to launch sometime this summer.

CMHR is also offering one free admission night a month for everyone. That will come on the first Wednesday of every month, starting in January 2015.

School groups will be able to visit for $5 per student per program, for both interpreter-led programs (available for K-12) and self-guided visits (available groups of students over age 10). School-group registration starts in October for programs beginning in January 2015.

As for the hours of operation, CMHR will be open from Tuesday to Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The museum will be closed on Mondays.

CMHR is scheduled to open its doors to the public in September.
