The Bedeque Museum is taking part in another activity funded by Canada 150, one that has been organized by the Community Museums Association of PEI. As soon as you enter the Museum you will see a special display consisting of five objects from the Museum’s collection which have selected by us to tell an aspect of the history of Canada. Our collection being Island-based means that most of the items chosen are specific to Island history, but then the Island has been part of Canada for 144 years, and so they qualify! On your visit we want you to think about the contribution that each of these five objects has made to the history of the Island and so, of Canada. We would also like you to think about the objects in today’s world that we should be collecting in order to preserve our history to Canadians 100 years from now. We encourage you to come to the Museum to see the five items and to write down your thoughts.
