The Winnipeg River Heritage Museum overlooks the river on land donated by Alphonse Vincent, a descendant of the region’s French homesteaders. Re-established after a devastating fire in 2014, the Winnipeg River Heritage Museum’s exhibits and interactive displays capture the spirit of the people who have endured and thrived on the river for generations.  Discover tales of Indigenous and Métis peoples, trading posts, missionary-established settlements and industry-driven communities. Witness the development of hydroelectric generating stations that changed the Winnipeg River forever. Begin the journey to uncover the Winnipeg River region’s unique history.
