Changes in culture and identity have shaped the last 100 years of Canadian history. We invite students to reflect on these changes through the examination of thought-provoking objects. The hands-on lab offers an overview of the 20th century from the Great War to present day. Included are objects originating from the trenches and battle fields in Europe, trendy items from the Roaring 20s, evocative pieces of the Depression and the Cold War and finally post-centennial year items of a very recent past.

For the duration of the special exhibition The Evidence Room which closes on January 28, 2018, we will examine the Holocaust through the lens of architecture. Students will learn about the central role architecture played in the construction of the Auschwitz death camp. This exhibition presents undeniable forensic architectural evidence that the Nazis designed and carried out the murder of over one million Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau during the Holocaust. Discover the Canadian connection in this interactive hands-on lab.

In addition to the lab and with a museum teacher, students will visit collections pertaining to this period of history as they are found in several ROM galleries such as the Sigmund Samuel Gallery of Canada, the Daphne Cockwell Gallery of Canada: First Peoples and the Samuel European Galleries.
