The safety and security of visitors remain a top priority. Our travelling exhibitions have been adapted to respect physical distancing and other public health measures.


From the European origins of skating to the Canadian Olympic dream, this exhibition covers hockey, figure skating and speed skating, along with many other skating-related topics. This two-dimensional exhibition on the history of skating is ideal for a small or non-traditional exhibition space. Borrowing venues may also want to add their own related collections to supplement the story and give the show local flavour.
