Welcome to Winnipeg's Exchange District, the cultural hub located on 20 city blocks in the heart of downtown. This National Historic Site was first founded in 1881, playing a big part in the city's key economic role in expanding to the west. Today the district features several restaurants, boutiques, theatres, galleries, museums, and more. It is considered to be 'one of the most iconic and vibrant neighborhoods in Winnipeg'!
The Exchange District offers several educational historic walking tours, the tours allowing you to explore the 'massive stone and brick warehouses, elegant terracotta-clad buildings, narrow angled streets as well as cobblestone paths and alleyways.' The district is filled with heritage buildings built between 1880 and 1920. Professional guides will examine legends of power, corruption, and heroism while allowing you to enjoy the architecture collection, with several different tour options including STRIKE!, Western Exchange, Eastern Exchange, Art and Architecture, Death and Dubachery, Winnipeg's Wonder Women, and more.
Shopping and dining are popular activities within the Exchange as well, with several unique boutiques from Adama Canada to Wilder Goods, as well as over 50 dining options.
