Snapshots of Canada

Plan Your Visit

Paul Henderson scores the winning goal in the 1972 Summit Series. A little boy runs after his father marching off to war. Terry Fox is silhouetted by headlights of a police cruiser on his Marathon of Hope. Exploring unforgettable moments in our history, the outdoor exhibition Snapshots of Canada pairs compelling images with texts by well-known authors, journalists and historians. Images ranging from high drama to simple joy are tangible reminders of the triumphs, failures and sacrifices that have shaped our country.

A travelling exhibition developed by the Canadian Museum of History and Canada’s History.
