Museum Collections Webinar Series by Canada’s History

The Museum Collections webinar series by Canada’s History explores the stories that are told through collections and artifacts. History is communicated through stories. In museums, artifacts can tell broad stories, but they also possess their own unique histories and refer back to different periods and people.

By looking at collections from museums across Canada, we can further understand the ways in which they communicate stories to the public. This webinar series features curators and other collections specialists and partners to understand how they decide what gets communicated through their objects.
