RightsFest is underway at The Forks.
The celebration of the opening of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is all weekend and all-inclusive.
At Winnipeg's oldest and most famous meeting place, there are skateboarding competitions, graffiti demonstrations and diverse entertainment on smaller stages indoors and outdoors.
The main stage entertainment begins at 3 p.m.
Meanwhile, the first of 9,000 visitors this weekend to get a preview tour of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights had just one complaint.
It was too short.
"It was a brief tour - just scratching the surface," said Maureen Polischuk. The sneak peek inside the new museum was limited to four of the 11 galleries.
"I think it's the kind of place where I'd want six hours," said Polischuk, a mother of four. She was there with her husband, their youngest child and her neighbour, Bernice Marmel.
"It's fabulous," said Marmel. "The potential for learning about human rights is enormous."
Visitor Adam Bernardo said the tour left him wanting more.
"I've been to museums around the world and I think it's comparable," said the young man of Filipino descent. "I'm proud of it."
He said he plans to return when the building is open to the general public Sept. 27.
