This year Canada is hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup, which means many football fans will be flocking to these matches. Some games are even taking place here in Winnipeg. This is a great time for people to not only be part of FIFA history, but to also get to know some Canadian cities. Today we’ll be looking at things to do near Winnipeg Stadium for ways to spend time between matches.
This is one of the most recent additions to the Winnipeg skyline. It is eye-catching and interesting to explore. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights has 11 powerful, interactive and exciting exhibits. You can even climb to the top, the Tower of Hope, to see a view of the city below. This is a great way to learn about human rights in Canada and see some amazing architecture.
If you want something the whole family will enjoy, stop by the Journey to Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo. This exhibit features polar bears as they swim, dive and play. Other exhibits include muskox, wolves, moose, seals, red pandas, snow leopards and over 200 other species. If you take a break from watching football, this is a great place to come.
If you want to check out something a little more relaxing, we suggest the Winnipeg Art Gallery. It has about 24,000 works featuring many Canadian and Manitoba-focused pieces, including the world’s largest collection of contemporary Inuit art. It has artwork from the Renaissance, Dadaism, Ancient Greece and even contemporary photography.
These are just a few of the exciting things to see while you are in the Winnipeg area for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
