November Events at the Canadian Museum of History

This Thursday there's an open invitation to meet the historians who "vigilantly chose the artifacts and stories that are on display in the newly opened Canadian History Hall. On this exclusive night, wander through the exhibition and meet the people who helped create this exciting look at Canada’s past 15,000 years of history. Enjoy cocktails and historically inspired treats, then go and speak with historians and learn some surprising facts. This fun and unique night out for adults is a chance to rub elbows with fellow history buffs, and discover a side of our past that you won’t find in any textbook."

The event in the History Hall at the Canadian Museum of History this Thursday, 2 November, 2017, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m is free.

On 30 November join historian Charlotte Gray for "a fascinating look at Canada’s history and national identity. An award-winning writer in the genres of biography and popular history, Gray’s most recent book is The Promise of Canada: 150 Years — People and Ideas that Have Shaped Our Country. Enjoy this latest instalment of the Canadian Museum of History’s Beyond 150 series, as Gray discusses Canadians who helped shape the country we live in today, and explains why popular history is more important than ever."

This free event is in the Resource Centre of the Canadian Museum of History on Thursday, 30 November, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. It will be preceded at 6 pm by a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony outside the museum.
