Riel House National Historic Site

Phone: (204) 257-1783
330 River Road - Winnipeg MB

Top Pick

As its name implies, this national historic site of Canada has close ties with Métis leader and a founder of Manitoba, Louis Riel. Occupying river lot 51 along the Red River, Riel House National Historic Site was Riel's family home, where his descendants continued to live until 1969. It is here, in the living room of his mother's house, that Riel's body lay in state for two days in December 1885. The house itself, a Red River Frame building (a style of construction popular for this region) has been restored to the spring of 1886.

Opening Hours

Riel House National Historic Site is open from mid-May until the Labour Day weekend in September, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
