Guided Tours of Winnipeg Public Art

2024 Summer Tours

Get outside and explore our city through public art… Free walking, cycling and bus tours will return in May!

Join us on a tour this summer and learn about the artwork you pass by every day… What is it made of? Why is it there? What does it mean? Some works are fun, colourful, and interactive, and some encourage quiet contemplation. Join us on an informative excursion and get to know the artwork that punctuates and brightens our city!
