In celebration of Winnipeg's 150th anniversary, the city has created a travelling archives tour. 

This new pop-up exhibit will feature a variety of images and historical panels that showcase the history of Winnipeg.

“Winnipeg’s 150th anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate our rich history and the diverse stories that have shaped our city,” said Mayor Scott Gillingham. “The Winnipeg 150 Archives Tour offers the public a chance to connect with our past and gain a deeper appreciation for the vibrant community we are today. I encourage everyone to visit the exhibit and learn more about our shared history.”

The first stop of the tour is in Garden City. It will remain there until July 2 when it travels to Kildonan Place Shopping Centre. From there it will head to the Winnipeg Richardson Airport before making a stop at Grant Park Shopping Centre. 

The same images, which have been sourced from the City of Winnipeg Archives, Winnipeg Public Library (Community Services), Manitoba Museum, Archives of Manitoba / Hudson’s Bay Company Archives, and other sources, will also pop up at various libraries over the coming months. 

The tour will continue until the end of the year.
