Meet at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Take a taxi, or carpool to stunning Fort Whyte Alive, a 20 minute drive from the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Upon arrival, take part in a Canadian Tourism Commission Signature Experience, A Prairie Legacy: The Bison and its People. Discover how the bison influenced the history of Manitoba and the lives of the people of the prairies.

Explore a Plains Cree Tipi, step inside a one-room pioneer sod house, and savour wild bush tea and bannock over a campfire.
Enjoy a light lunch of soup, sandwich as well as a cookie and a drink at the onsite restaurant.
Enjoy the rest of your day at Fort Whyte Alive self-guided. Explore the south trails at your leisure, shop at the boutique, or visit the interpretive centre.
