SNOW, a traveling exhibition
created by the Canadian Museum of History in partnership
with the J. Armand Bombardier Museum, on display from
January 30, 2016 to April 24, 2016.
Snow. A source of passion, creativity and ingenuity —
what would Canada be without it? This exhibition reveals
how snow has shaped the Canadian identity. From the time
of their arrival in North America, Europeans have had to
contend with snow, as had Aboriginal Peoples for
centuries before them. Snow has always influenced the
way we live and our ability to adapt — look no further
than our constantly evolving winter sports. Snow is not
only the muse of artists, but also a driver of the
economy. Discover a new exhibition that presents a
cultural history of snow. You’ll never look at winter
the same way again.
Markham Museum, in
partnership with the City, will explore Markham’s
response to the December 2013 Ice Storm. Learn about
weather warnings in addition to tips, activities and
resources your family can use to help prepare for
emergencies in this unique Markham piece to complement
