History Slam Episode 103: Reviewing the New Canada Hall at the Canadian Museum of History

By Sean Graham

On July 1, 2017, the Canadian Museum of History opened its new Canada Hall to the public. After a multi-year renovation project, which included consultations across the country, there was great anticipation to see what the museum had put together for visitors. The reviews have been generally positive – even if they point out some of the Hall’s shortcomings – and anecdotally, people seem to be enjoying the refreshed look. Given the fanfare, it was only natural that the History Slam take a stroll across the river to take a first-hand look at the renovated Canada Hall.

In this episode of the History Slam, podcast Hall of Famers Aaron Boyes and Madeleine Kloske join me as we walk through the new Canada Hall. We give our thoughts before we head into the exhibit, break down each of the sections as we walk through, and even play one of the new interactive games. We then sit down following the visit and give our thoughts on the exhibit as a whole, its strengths and weaknesses, and give our grades for the revamped Canada Hall.
