Meet your guide for an unforgettable tour of some of the most popular and well known architectural buildings Winnipeg has. Start off your tour at The Forks, Winnipeg’s most famous meeting place. The Forks is in a unique position where the Assiniboine River and Red Rivers meet and has a rich history as an early Aboriginal settlement, fur trade post, railway, immigration, and the industrial wave into Winnipeg. Drive past the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and see the impressive structure tower over the area. Cross the Esplanade Riel into Winnipeg’s French Quarter and see the largest remaining traditional oak structure in North America, the St. Boniface Museum. Pass by some other notable structures designed by well known architect Etienne Gabouray.

Stop in front of the Manitoba Legislative Building and see how the architect has hidden freemasonic symbols and occult images into the buildings features making the building a disguise for a temple. Head downtown to Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District, now a National Historic Site of Canada that made Winnipeg the “Chicago of the North” back in the early 20th century. The Exchange District has also been used for numerous Hollywood movies and TV shows. After that, travel into the future and learn about the Manitoba Hydro Building which is regarded as one of the most eco friendly buildings of the world garnering numerous awards and accolades for its design.
