About the Museum:

The Nellie McClung Heritage Site in Manitou, Manitoba features the only two of Nellie’s homes in Canada that are open to the public. Much of what Nellie accomplished during her career took flight in Manitou, where she lived for nearly 20 years. In McClung House, she wrote two Canadian best sellers, began her work as a champion of women’s and human rights and raised four of their five children. Nellie Mooney first arrived in Manitou as a 16 year old teacher at Hazel School, just three miles north of the community. The home where she boarded, now known as Hazel Cottage, provides visitors a glimpse into Nellie’s earliest years as a budding believer in human rights.

Museum Events:

Annual Lilac+ Lace Luncheon, celebrated on Nellie McClung Day - June 25th - at The Met in Winnipeg 2020 luncheon tickets will come on sale in late January and are expected to sell out quickly.
