AN EXHIBITION PRODUCED BY THE CANADIAN MUSEUM OF HISTORY, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE J. ARMAND BOMB ARDIER MUSEUM
Snow. It is a source of passion, creativity and ingenuity. In fact, what would Canada be without it? This exhibition reveals how snow has shaped the Canadian identity – you’ll never look at winter the same way again.
From the time of their arrival in North America, Europeans had to contend with snow, as Aboriginal Peoples had done for centuries before them. Snow has always influenced both the way we live and our ability to adapt – we need look no further than our constantly evolving winter sports. Snow is not only the muse of artists, but also a driver of the economy. Visitors will enjoy this new exhibition, and its cultural history of snow, as they explore our connection with this essential part of the Canadian identity.
