PHOTOS: Canadian Museum for Human Rights

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is now open.

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, officially opened the museum, the world’s only museum solely devoted to the exploration and celebration of human rights.

“We open these doors so that all who enter will be reminded of a simple but profound truth – we can make a difference in this world,” said Murray. “Taking up the cause of human rights requires no special training. It demands no formal study or special skill. The tools of change are those with which we are already endowed: understanding, respect, courage and an open heart.”
