Tribute Gala

The Manitoba Museum’s Annual Tribute Gala honours prominent community members and celebrates a multitude of experiences through our theme of Celebrating Community Voices. The Tribute Gala supports the Access for All initiative by removing financial, social, and cultural barriers to visitation. Through your support, the Museum aims to further grow, diversify, and engage new audiences. To continually reflect and assess research, collections, exhibitions, and programs to enhance their relevance to Manitoba’s diverse populations including ethnicity, culture, age, gender, and abilities. Continuing to create a Museum that belongs to all Manitobans.
