Winnipeg River Heritage Museum  in St. Georges
The new Winnipeg River Heritage Museum is built along the river on land bequeathed by one of the first Quebec homesteaders to settle in the region. It is home to family memorabilia and community-specific stories. Despite the fire that ravaged many of its artifacts in 2014, several objects have been preserved and allow you to learn more about the history of the region through photos and exhibitions.
