Dalnavert Museum and Visitors’ Centre is a national historic site that is one of the finest examples in Western Canada of Queen Anne Revival architecture. Built in 1895, it was home to former Manitoba premier Sir Hugh John Macdonald, the son of Sir John A. Macdonald, and his family. Now as a museum, it brings people together with history, culture, and much more. This summer visit Winnipeg’s early history through the lens of the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike. Our exhibit Strike 1919: Our Cause is Just is free and runs May through September 2019.
