A TRAVELLING EXHIBITION DEVELOPED BY THE CANADIAN MUSEUM OF HISTORY AND CANADA’S HISTORY SOCIETY

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 travelling 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.
