Prof Adam Mueller: Why Canadians will come to the human rights museum

Adam Mueller, posted January 23, 2011


[Prof Adam Mueller responded to Jonathon Kay's article in the National Post "Three Reason's Why Winnipeg's Human Rights Museum is Doomed To Failure. Kay's article can be found here. Mueller's response can be found below ].


Re: Build It, And They Won't Come, Jonathan Kay, Dec. 22.

Jonathan Kay identifies three reasons why he thinks the Canadian Museum for Human Rights will not succeed:

(1) museums must be artifactual; (2) the CMHR cannot be comprehensive in its coverage of human rights; and

(3) no one will come to Winnipeg to see it.

About (1): Mr. Kay is simply wrong, and he is clearly oblivious of the emergence over the past two decades of a number of critically praised ideas museums. Amongst the most notable of these are the Museum of Peace in Caen, France, the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles and San Francisco's Exploratorium.
