Welcome to your history! See why the Canadian Museum of History is the place to be as Canada celebrates its 150th birthday. From the spectacular new Canadian History Hall — opening on July 1, with a compelling new take on our shared history — to exhibitions that transport visitors everywhere from centre ice (Hockey) to the heart of an Arctic mystery (The Franklin Expedition) to the first steps and impressions of newcomers to this country (Canada: Day 1), and much more, this new highlight video showcases what promises to be a stellar season at the Museum.

Special thanks to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Canada’s History Society, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, DreamWorks Animation, the Government of Nunavut, the Inuit Heritage Trust, Library and Archives Canada, Mattel, the Musée de la civilisation (Québec City), the National Maritime Museum (London, UK), Parks Canada, Pointe-à-Callière Montréal Archaeology and History Complex, and the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis for their contributions to this video.
