The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) is the first museum solely dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. The aim of CMHR is to build not only a national hub for human rights learning and discovery, but a new era of global human rights leadership.
Creating inspiring encounters with human rights, CMHR engages Canadians and international visitors in an immersive, interactive experience that offers both the inspiration and tools to make a difference in the lives of others. CMHR welcomes their visitors as partners on a journey to erase barriers and create meaningful, lasting change.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the first national museum to be built in nearly half a century, and the first outside the National Capital Region.
The purpose of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is to explore the subject of human rights, with special but not exclusive reference to Canada, in order to enhance the public’s understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others and to encourage reflection and dialogue (Museums Act).
