From Vimy to Juno
Our latest special exhibit is a bilingual travelling exhibition that examines Canada’s role in the First and Second World Wars, anchored on the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917 and the D-Day landings on Juno Beach in June 1944. The exhibition focuses on the personal stories of the men and women who experienced firsthand these nation-defining moments in Canadian history, while at the same time exams Canada as a nation from 1914 to 1945.
The exhibit is a project of Juno Beach Centre with support from the Government of Canada in partnership with The Vimy Foundation.
On display from May 6 to June 18, 2019.
There will be a special open house to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings June 6, stay tuned for more information!
Our pioneer-themed exhibits have been enhanced with modern technology. We have a vignette in each exhibit to give you a more in-depth look at how pioneers lived. Get a sneak peek here.
