Architects and builders of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights took members of the media on an extensive tour Friday morning.

"Construction of the CMHR is an internationally significant achievement," said Sean Barnes, vice-president and district manager for PCL Constructors, the museum’s general contractor.

"As builders, we may never get a chance to work on a project so complicated and cool."

The $351-million museum will feature about 800 metres of rampways taking people through 11 galleries, telling a wide variety of human-rights stories. The building was described as a "sculpture" that is one of the most accessible building in the world.

The museum’s grand opening is scheduled for Sept. 20.
