The Canadian Museum for Human Rights has extended its hours and will now be open every Wednesday until 8 p.m.
"Evening hours will help us serve a portion of the population that may not have time during the day or on the weekend, or those who wish to see the museum in a different light," Gail Stephens, CMHR interim president said in a news release.
The museum is also introducing a free evening once a month, as previously announced when admission fees were made public last June. On Wednesday, January 14, admission will be available at no charge between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Starting in February, the first Wednesday evening of each month will be free.
"Just as we are committed to inclusive design in serving persons of all abilities and ages, we also strive to minimize other barriers to access based on income, lifestyle or working hours," said Stephens.
During the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 21, visitors can also participate in a free public event at 7 p.m. featuring a panel discussion about the media's role during the Holodomor famine-genocide in Ukraine during the 1930s.
