Exhibits - Film - Music



Until 23 June


Gimli, MB: The New Iceland Heritage Museum is hosting a new travelling exhibit, 1867 – Rebellion and Confederation. This is a very fitting exhibit to help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, talking about the how it all began. Developed by the Canadian Museum of History. This exhibition explores the route to nationhood taken by a society in transition, and by the people who fought, negotiated and made compromises to forge a more peaceable union. By tracing the pivotal moments leading to the draft of the British North America Act, this exhibition helps visitors to better understand how this legacy continues to affect our identity, our values and our institutions. 94-1st Ave. 204-642-4001. Winter hours: 10- 4 Mon. to Fri., 1- 4 Sat. and Sun.
