Hello...

We're the official museum of The Royal Winnipeg Rifles Regiment. The Regiment, founded in 1883 in Winnipeg, is the oldest infantry regiment in Western Canada. The Museum had its humble beginnings at the Minto Armoury in Winnipeg in the mid-1960’s. It was started as a local initiative to preserve the Regiment’s history, and was accredited as an official Canadian Forces Museum in the late 1970’s. The Archives, the Regiment's collection of historical documents and records, was formally established in 1994, its holdings having been boxed until that time. Between 2016 and 2018, the Museum underwent a 100% modernization. Come see what we've accomplished!
