    Join us for a mini-museum experience with replica artifacts from the Canadian Museum of History!  

    With replicas of real objects that are housed at the Canadian Museum of History, can you figure out what it was used for?  

    Imagine yourself with that object from the past and draw a picture of yourself using that object.  Then we will put together a time capsule of a drawing of your favourite item to be opened in the future.  Which object today do you think would be important to uncover for future generations, 100 years from now?
