School Programs

The Canadian Museum of History proposes a wide range of school programs that encourage students to deepen their understanding of the people, places and events that have shaped Canada. The Museum features a number of permanent and special exhibitions, and is home to the Canadian Children’s Museum and an IMAX® Theatre.

The Museum’s school programs offer meaningful learning experiences designed to support teachers in exceptional history education. Based on the principles of critical thinking, they give students access to material history and problem-solving activities, as well as creative opportunities to communicate their findings. Museums share history through the stories they tell, and our programs ensure that your students gain a greater understanding of the human stories behind historical events.

Our programs closely match Ontario and Quebec curricula in the areas of Social Studies, History and Geography.
