At Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum, Manitoba's founding father Louis Riel lives on in an assembly of artifacts, including moccasins and a tuque he once wore. He's just one of the historical figures represented in the museum's collection, which preserves and displays elements of the area's French-Canadian, Métis, and First Nations cultures. It also holds Archbishop Alexandre-Antonin Taché’s bookcase, Pauline Boutal’s painted masterpieces, and the violin of legendary musician Andy de Jarlis. Even the building itself acts as a piece of French-Canadian history—it was once the Grey Nuns' convent and now boasts the title of Winnipeg's oldest building.
