Found in Collection: Mining Community Museum Collections to Inform Historical Understanding

This Activehistory.ca and Halton Region Heritage Services exhibit aims to expand the historical narrative around standard community museum collection items. As museum practices have evolved, striving for a more inclusive, diverse representation of history and local stories, efforts have been made to connect singular objects to a wider historical narrative. This online exhibit and the included artifact interpretations reflects this desired shift in historical narrative.

Special thanks to all of the staff at Halton Region Heritage Services for their work on this exhibit:

Meredith Leonard, Education and Community Coordinator
