WINNIPEG TOURISM

Known as the "cultural cradle of Canada," Winnipeg is Manitoba’s cosmopolitan capital city offering plenty of charm. It is a four-season destination boasting a dazzling arts, theatre and indie music scene, as well as lip-smacking dining options to tantalize taste buds.

The city is transforming with more than $2 billion of investment in new infrastructure and attractions, such as the iconic Canadian Museum for Human Rights designed by Antoine Predock and the world-class Journey to Churchill polar bear exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo.

Winnipeg’s attractions educate, entertain and delight. The Forks is the city’s meeting place with 54 sprawling acres of shopping, parkland, restaurants and entertainment, and a history that spans more than 6,000 years. Explore Winnipeg’s diverse neighbourhoods, such as the historic Exchange District or the boho chic Osborne Village. Marvel at the grace of Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, hop aboard the Nonsuch—a replica trading ship at The Manitoba Museum, or visit the Winnipeg Art Gallery, home to the world’s largest collection of Inuit art.

Beyond city limits is trophy fishing and hunting, while sun seekers adore the white sand of Grand Beach—named one of North America’s top beaches, located an hour’s drive away on Lake Winnipeg.
