If you are interested in the history of nautical life then you need to visit The Marine Museum. There more than 100 artifacts on display here. However, the highlight of the museum was the 1915 ship and the 1897 steamship that used to be under the operation of the federal government. The historic site of Lower Fort Garry is one site that I wanted to visit to check out the only restored stone from the era of the fur trade of North America.

The renovations keep going on a small scale but the Synagogue is always open for everyone. While walking around it, you can find a cemetery of Jewish sitting on the back side of the building.
