The Canadian Museum of History's

New Signature Exhibition

The Canadian History Hall

Welcome to Your History

Welcome to your history. The Canadian History Hall presents Canada’s story as you’ve never seen it before. Explore Canada’s history through the diverse experiences and perspectives of the real people who lived it. Discover our collective story of conflict, struggle and loss, as well as success, achievement and hope.

See the faces of First Peoples who walked this land thousands of years ago — brought to life for the first time through scientific reconstructions. Trace the events and experiences that led to the foundation of a country stretching from sea to sea to sea, which has withstood the test of time. Rediscover contemporary struggles for the social and political rights that have made Canada a more inclusive and diverse society, and learn how Canada emerged as a prosperous and independent country on the world stage.

This new signature exhibition illuminates the enduring legacy of Canada’s past — a legacy that is alive, relevant and continually unfolding.
