Canadian Museum of History – Gatineau, Quebec

Canadian Museum of History highlights the people, places, events, and artifacts that forged the early understanding of Canadian identity and the country’s legacy.

Celebrated for its architecture, collections, and captivating Children’s Museum, the museum makes considerable effort to move its experiences online while the facility is temporarily closed due to COVID-19.

Timeless Treasures: The Story of Dolls in Canada is particularly fascinating for those interested in exploring the history of these objects of play. Inuit and First Nations dolls provide a deeper understanding of their cultures and the artistry that went into the creation of dolls. Features about European, mechanical, and vinyl dolls showcase their evolution over time.

Canadian Museum of History is a first-class destination for curious minds of all ages. There are many ways to support the Museum while they are temporarily closed. Visit the Support tab on their website for more information.
