The Canadian Museum for Human Rights has finally been able to throw open its doors to the public without cordoning off any exhibit space.
All 11 galleries in the $351-million federal institution are complete and open to the public for the first time since the Winnipeg museum held its official opening in September.
Initially, six of those galleries were incomplete. All were finished – including electronic touchscreens – before the CMHR opened up on Tuesday at 1 p.m.
The lineup for tickets initially extended about 100 people deep, but the facility has a capacity for approximately 3,000 visitors at once.
