The Canadian Museum of Civilization is Canada’s national museum of human history, and offers students an opportunity to explore Canada’s history, identity and cultural diversity. Knowing more about the lives of the people who have come before us—and the people who live around us today—helps students to better understand the world in which we live, as well as the world we hope to shape in the future. Our school programs are aimed at students in preschool through secondary school, and are designed to support teachers in their efforts to provide skill-building, problem-solving and creative-learning opportunities. Programs closely match Ontario and Quebec curricula, particularly in the areas of social studies, history and geography.
In addition to its many permanent and special exhibitions, the Canadian Museum of Civilization is home to the Canadian Children’s Museum and an IMAX® Theatre. Our wide range of world-class attractions enables us to offer a broad selection of experiences tailored to your needs, and those of your students.
“We need more programs like these to pique the interest of students and open them up to the fascinating story of Canada.”
— Grade 6 teacher, Vincent Massey Public School
