Kick off your weekend the rights way!

The first free Friday night at the Museum is a great chance to get together and explore the exhibits, share a meal and drinks at ERA Bistro, browse through the Boutique, and enjoy live art with music by a DJ. (Bistro reservations are highly recommended.)

Cost: Free after 5 p.m. Get your free tickets, avoid the line!

Watch local artist Kal Barteski create a live performance painting depicting Winnipeg’s skyline (Bonnie & John Buhler Hall) from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Enjoy music by a DJ all evening.

Drinks (cash bar) and snacks will be served in the Stuart Clark Garden of Contemplation and in Bonnie & John Buhler Hall. You’ll also find a pop-up Boutique.

Explore the Museum’s incredible architecture and exhibits at your leisure, ascending on illuminated alabaster ramps.
