Discover the often hidden stories of children in the Treasures From Library and Archives Canada gallery at the Canadian Museum of History. A Little History presents rarely seen archival documents, photographs, works of art and artifacts from the collections of both the Museum of History and Library and Archives Canada. The exhibition recounts the unique experiences of children as witnesses to historic events as well as the perspectives of children found in archival documents. An experience to share as a family!

This exhibition is presented with support from Arthur B. C. Drache, C.M., Q.C. and Judy Young Drache.

Treasures From Library and Archives Canada is the result of a partnership between Library and Archives Canada and the Canadian Museum of History.
