Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Volodymyr Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchial Museum and Archbishop’s Chancery (233 Scotia Street, Winnipeg)

The St. Volodymyr Museum in Winnipeg was established in 1967, as a project of the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League of Canada to commemorate the Canadian centenary that year. Located originally at 418 Aberdeen Avenue, it was moved in 1985 and again in 1998, the latter time to the newly renovated Ukrainian Catholic Archbishop’s Chancery at 233 Scotia Street. The artifact collection, including liturgical items, portrays the Ukrainian Catholic experience in Manitoba. Of special note is the story of Canada’s first Ukrainian Catholic pastoral leader, Blessed Bishop and Martyr Nykyta Budka. Museum tours are offered by appointment.
