Manitoba, the Canadian province featuring a diverse landscape, offers lots of fun and adventure activities to tourists. Here are some of Manitoba's best tourist attractions for you to visit!
Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Winnipeg
Located in Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba, this is one of Canada’s crowning glories. A national museum and Canadian Crown Corporation, it narrates human rights issues from various perspectives.

A popular attraction in downtown Winnipeg for locals as well as tourists, the Forks Market is located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers.
Housed in a restored historical building, it has many interesting shops, awesome food stalls, and lively restaurants with outdoor patios alongside the Riverwalk.
If you’re visiting in winter, don’t miss spending some time in the outdoor skating rink with your family!
Polar Bears, Churchill
The ‘Polar Bear Capital of the World’, Churchill is a town on Hudson Bay in the north of Manitoba. In autumn, these animals are seen wandering the ice-floes hunting seals.
