The building is NOT handicapped accessible but we were able to get in a side door with a wheelchair and then through the gift shop. This problem was complicated by ongoing construction in the neighborhood.

Limited exhibits at this center but the gift shop is nice with many Ukrainian gift options. The Ukrainian/Jewish exhibit was on pictures and text and very limited. No other art was exhibited?

I am of Ukrainian heritage and while out of town family members were visiting I took them to this venue, we were all very impressed and learned things about our culture and the history of our ancestors coming to this country.

Yet another hidden gem in Winnipeg and right opposite the Manitoba Museum. Doesn;t take long to visit but it's lovely building, interesting displays. The shop alone is worth a visit with some lovely stuff.

I attended a wedding party here -- it is a beautiful building and a great venue for a party or wedding. Beautiful tapestries on the walls, a bar area, wood floors and a stage. Really nice!

There are many interesting exhibits, including: Pysanky, embroidery, tapestries, pottery, art, collections, archives and so much more. After you have visited the museum galleries, be sure to stop by the gift shop (largely run... More

Learned a lot from the displays- where the people immigrated from, why they came and the joys and adversities of their life in Canada including amazing history of people of Ukrainian decent being declared enemy aliens during the WW1 period- stripped of their rights, arrested and jailed in forced labour work camps that included being forced to work in building...
