Stand inside the oldest building in Winnipeg and the largest oak log structure in North America. The museum showcases objects related to the heritage of French-Canadian and Métis peoples.

Blending nostalgic charm with today’s mindfulness, Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum offers up La Belle Boutique Blanche,  a boutique for visitors and locals searching for that perfect gift or memento. Great care is  given to offer an eclectic array of local artisans’ works, Indigenous jewelry and crafts, French-Canadian and Métis specialty items, old-fashioned children’s toys, and eco-conscious products. Look above the tree line for the white bell tower at 494 Taché  Avenue.
