August 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 24, 2020
Canada’s triumphs, failures and sacrifices are on display at Sidney Museum in a new travelling exhibition from the Canadian Museum of History and Canada’s History Society. Showcasing unforgettable images and thought-provoking texts, Snapshots of Canada will be presented from 16 July until 24 December, 2020.
From the trial of Métis leader Louis Riel to Paul Henderson’s winning goal in the 1972 Summit Series, and from the deportation of Japanese-Canadians after the Second World War to the standoff at Oka, the exhibition pairs 50 powerful photographs with texts by well-known Canadian historians, authors and journalists.
Admission is by timed entry, and can be booked through our website. Admission is by donation. Exhibit text is English/French bilingual.
This travelling exhibition was developed by the Canadian Museum of History in partnership with Canada’s History Society. It is an expanded version of the Snapshots of Canada outdoor exhibition presented at the Canadian Museum of History, Gatineau, Quebec, from May 17 to October 2, 2017.
