Established in 2008, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights delves into a poignant subject that is of much relevance today. The museum explores various contemporary and historical events from the perspective of human rights, with a special focus on topics directly related to Canada, but not limited to these. Through varied exhibits, the museum hopes to encourage a better understanding of human rights amongst the general public and foster a healthy dialogue about such matters. The first new national museum since 1967 to be built outside the National Capital Region, the museum boasts an ingenious design by the architect, Antoine Predock. Inspired by the landscape, history and cultural heritage of Canada, Predock created a masterpiece of contemporary design that is rich in symbolism, an embodiment of a world rooted in humanity, its pinnacle reaching for the sky. Inside, graceful ramps and bright, open spaces lead to the summit of the Hope Tower, where glorious views of the city await.
