Active History’s exhibits section is intended as a platform to display a series of small exhibits featuring objects from various museum and archival collections across Canada. Each exhibit will be organized around a central theme, that historians, curators, museum professionals and archivists will contribute to in order to draw out the provenance of each object displayed, as well as its role in larger histories of material culture in Canada.
