Thank you for sending in your ideas of objects or stories that you would put in your national history museum for others to see, hear and touch, and for selecting those you liked. The site is no longer active but we have updated the website to reflect what you told us. Continue to share your ideas with us by email at myhistorymuseum@civilization.ca, or through Facebook and Twitter (@Civilization).

We have provided a selection of objects and stories that represent our history. What other types of objects or stories would you put in your Museum for others to see, hear and touch? Select as many as you like by clicking the “Like?” button. Is there anything missing?
