We reached out into the community, and they responded.  Over 140 artefacts have been loaned to the Museum for this exhibition. Community members have provided their artefacts and their idea on what makes it an important story about Canada's past.  

Visitors will explore the objects that the people of Niagara feel, tell a story about the country they live in.  There are stories about transportation, immigration, sports, military and much more.  These are personal stories that collectively tell us something about our nation.
