Winnipeg – November 8, 2017 – A glowing, poppy-red tower will shine atop the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) in honour of Remembrance Day this weekend, from dusk on November 10 until the morning of November 12.

There are only two occasions during the year when the Israel Asper Tower of Hope changes colour. It also turns maple-leaf red on Canada Day, reflecting the CMHR’s status as one of our country’s six national museums.

Free admission will be extended to veterans and active serving members of the Canadian armed forces and their families (up to a total of two adults and four youths) on November 10, 11 and 12.

The Museum will remain closed until 1 p.m. on Remembrance Day (November 11) to respect the solemn nature of this occasion and encourage the public to attend morning commemorative services.
