Free Admission to St. Boniface Museum

St. Boniface Museum is proud to announce that admission is free all year long in 2020 as part of Manitoba 150 celebrations, thanks to a donation to Manitoba 150 from the Catholic Health Corporation of Manitoba.
Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum is a museum in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada that is dedicated to Franco-Manitoban culture and history. It is located in the oldest building in Winnipeg, a former convent run by the Grey Sisters
When we opened to the public in 1967, Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum (MSBM) was referred to as “the lived-in museum”. The original Grey Nuns’ Convent had indeed been home to many people over the course of its more than 100 years of use (including Grey Nuns, novices, the elderly, hospital and hospice patients, orphans and families in need) and welcomed guests (boys and girls for day school, and later nursing school students) daily. Our building is the oldest in Winnipeg and it supported and touched many, many families as Saint-Boniface grew from a small catholic mission, to a city of its own.
Over time, Le Musée’s reputation has evolved as its collections, capacity and significance grew. Recognized as a keeper of Francophone and Métis heritage, it is an unavoidable reference point for researchers, a key experience for teachers and students, a must-see for tourists, a touchstone for our communities’ families and a wonderful part of Winnipeg’s cultural landscape.
