Museum announces “Five after Five” price for Wednesday nights

News Article

Winnipeg – February 7, 2017 – A new “Five after Five” pricing structure will be rolled out for Wednesday-evening admission to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR), starting tomorrow night.

While admission on the first Wednesday evening of each month remains free of charge, the entry fee for all other Wednesday nights will be reduced to $5 for all visitors from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Admission continues to be free for children under 7. (Regular admission at other times is $18 for adults, $9 for youth 7 to 17, and $14 for seniors and post-secondary students.)

The onsite ERA Bistro will also offer $5 cocktail and dessert specials. No admission fee is required to eat at the Bistro or visit the Museum’s Boutique.

Evening visits can be attractive for couples on a date night, who are looking for a meaningful experience in a beautiful setting. Extended hours also create a warm opportunity in winter months for new parents to get out of the house with babies in strollers. The Museum is also an accessible destination for persons with disabilities.

The Canada 150 exhibition 1867: Rebellion & Confederation is currently running in the Museum’s Level 1 Gallery, featuring more than 100 fascinating artifacts pertaining to our country’s birth. Entry is included with general admission.
