The Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library is a dynamic small museum with a focus on craft. MCML is located in the C2 Centre for Craft, a facility shared with the Manitoba Craft Council. As such, it is an exciting venue for those interested in craft and art, as it features both historic and contemporary work. The MCML collection is one of the oldest in Manitoba, having been established in the early 1930s. It now houses over 11,000 hand crafted items, craft related archival holdings, and craft tools. Through our collections, MCML interprets the rich craft history of Manitoba.
