Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 11/11/2014 (2093 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

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.

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is bathed in sunlight on a cool day in Winnipeg.
