About the Museum
Dalnavert Museum and Visitors' Centre (DMVC) is a national historic site that is one of the finest examples in Western Canada of Queen Revival architecture. Built in 1895, it was home to former Manitoba premier Sir Hugh John Macdonald, who was the son of Sir John A. Macdonald. Now as a museum, it brings people together with history, culture, and much more.
DMVC wouldn't be possible without the help of the non-profit organization, The Friends of Dalnavert Museum (FDM).
The FDM are committed to:
- Preserving and maintaining the museum's buildings, grounds, and collection
- Presenting engaging programs and exhibits that interpret the history of the house, its inhabitants, and Winnipeg's early heritage for visitors
- Developing partnerships and programming that will make Dalnavert a cultural centre for city residents
