Housed in a former convent of the Grey Nuns, this museum features artifacts and displays about French-Canadian and Métis history in Western Canada.
The building itself is of historical significance, not only because it is Winnipeg’s oldest building, but also because it is the largest remaining traditional oak log structure in North America. A statue commemorating Louis Riel by Franco-Manitoban artist Réal Bérard is displayed in front of the museum which also features a nationally renowned collection of artifacts related to Riel's life.
Pick up a Voyageur or Métis souvenir. The souvenir and gift shop is located in the historic St. Boniface museum, the oldest building in the City of Winnipeg.
