Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum
Annual Report 2022

The first half of the year started slowly due to continued pandemic restrictions. The museum being part of the tourism industry, it was among the sectors that saw the greatest impacts. Schools were cautious and were not going on outings, and public visitation was low. Once restrictions were lifted, a sigh of relief was felt across the industry, but people were slow to return to their pre-pandemic habits. The museum saw an increase in self directed visits and a decrease in accepting the active offer of personal tours in the museum as well as outdoors. With continued border restrictions, there was little international visitors. To remain accessible during this period, the museum adopted ‘pay as you wish’ for admission, which was well received. We remain hopeful that 2023 will see the beginning of a return to pre-pandemic numbers.
