Statement of Commitment
The Manitoba Museum is committed to ensuring equal access and participation for people with disabilities. We believe in inclusion. We are committed to treating people with disabilities in ways that allow them to maintain their dignity and independence. We are committed to meeting the needs of people who face accessibility barriers. We will do this by identifying, removing, and preventing barriers, and by meeting the requirements of The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA).
Disclaimer: The Manitoba Museum opened its doors in 1970 and understand that many parts of the Museum are due for renewal. We appreciate your patience as the Museum continues to address outdated infrastructure as funding allows.
