Throughout the fall and winter of 2012-2013, the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Canadian War Museum asked Canadians these important questions. What would you put in your national history museum? What stories would you tell? How would you reach Canadians across the country? In response, there were over 17,000 visits to the site and more than 1,000 people completed the on-line survey. We want to thank all of you who participated in building your history museum. The website now reflects what you told us.

 

The site is no longer active but we will still be listening: continue to share your ideas with us by email at myhistorymuseum@civilization.ca, or through Facebook and Twitter (@Civilization).
