Canadian Museum of Civilization presents Snow exhibition

Submitted by on January 1, 2014 – 10:42 am

The Canadian Museum of Civilization presents Snow an exhibition on view through September 28, 2014. This new 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 had Aboriginal Peoples for centuries before them. Snow has always influenced the way we live and our ability to adapt — look no further than our constantly evolving winter sports. Snow is not only the muse of artists but also a driver of the economy. Come discover a new exhibition that presents a cultural history of snow. Featuring 300 artifacts, Snow will provide greater insight into our connection with this essential element of the Canadian identity.

An exhibition created by the Canadian Museum of Civilization in partnership with the J. Armand Bombardier Museum.
