We're the official museum of The Royal Winnipeg Rifles Regiment and an accredited Canadian Armed Forces museum.
Thursday: noon to 8 pm
… and by appointment for other days/time (just e-mail us to make arrangements for tours). Admission is free. Find us at the Minto Armoury at 969 St. Matthews Avenue in Winnipeg. Parking is available at the Armoury and on the streets surrounding the Armoury. Please note that the Museum is age appropriate for visitors 12 years of age and older.
Self-guided tours. The Museum collection is designed so that you can walk through a chronological portrayal of the Regiment's history at your own pace.
Guided tours. You can also take a guided tour. We'll walk you through the Museum and the displays around the Minto Armouries, which is an incredibly interesting building itself. To help us prepare for the tour, contact us in advance to let us know when you would like the tour and for how many people.
School tours. Make the Museum part of your school year! Our guided class tours offer amazing opportunities for your students to ask Museum staff questions and get detailed answers on important aspects of Canada’s and Winnipeg’s military history, and make links from the past to the present. We engage students in lively conversations that strengthen curriculum connections and encourage important skills like critical thinking and evidence-based reasoning. Students start in a classroom-like setting with a presentation on the history of the Regiment to orient them, then they break into teams where they engage in interactive activities such as scavenger hunts. Our approach is adapted to different age groups and topics, and our presentations are designed to generate discussions.
