rebellion-and-confedration-invite1867 Rebellion and Confederation

A Travelling Exhibition Developed by the Canadian Museum of History

January 24 – March 26

“On July 1, 1867, Confederation was proclaimed, marking the birth of today’s Canada and the culmination of a journey that had taken nearly 30 years. 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.” – Canadian Museum of History

Along with the travelling exhibition, the Musée Héritage Museum will be uncovering some intriguing facts and information about what the world was like in 1867—locally and internationally.

In recognition of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the St Albert Mission, the Musée Héritage Museum celebrated with the St Albert History Gallery. St Albert’s story began 5,000 years ago with the first people that came to this valley. Many others followed: fur traders, missionaries, adventurers and settlers. The Musée Héritage Museum opened an exhibition that tells the story of the St Albert area, the people who came to live here and the ways they changed the community. Many unique and beautiful artifacts from our collection are on display illustrating the story.
