As Canada’s 150th anniversary quickly approaches, we’ve been busy working on a few exciting projects to open next year amidst the celebrations. From the economy, science & technology to the country’s natural environment and rich history, these four exhibitions will celebrate some of the many facets of this place we call home.
The Canadian History Hall at the Canadian Museum of History
Since 2013, we’ve been collaborating with the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau Ottawa to develop a brand new signature exhibition. The Canadian History Hall will tell Canada’s story from the last ice age to today across three distinct galleries, and will open on July 1, 2017.
The Canada Goose Arctic Gallery at the Canadian Museum of Nature
This permanent gallery will explore the Arctic and its importance to Canada in the 21st century. Immersing visitors in a region that most Canadians may never get a chance to visit, the gallery will work to transform our understanding of the Arctic, its people and the natural landscapes, plants and animals that inhabit it.
A Moving & Connecting Gallery at the Canada Science & Technology Museum
After closing its doors in 2014, the new Canada Science & Technology Museum will open in 2017, offering visitors an immersive experience with plenty of opportunity for hands-on learning. One of five main galleries, the Moving & Connecting Gallery will explore areas of technology that have greatly contributed to the country’s global reach, from transportation and steam technologies to sound and communication.
An All-New Visitor Experience at the Bank of Canada Museum
In 2017, the Bank of Canada will move its permanent visitor centre into a new home, and with it, into a new identity. Formerly the Currency Museum, highlights of the new Bank of Canada Museum in downtown Ottawa are an educational space and a bright, open and interactive exhibition. The Museum will present the work of the Bank of Canada in ways that are both meaningful and friendly, relating them to Canadians’ everyday lives.
