WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
There are all kinds of museums across Canada, and how we experience and value them is very personal. Please share your perspective to help museums sustain and grow their positive impact in our communities and in a changing world.
What do you love about museums and want to see more of? How do they need to evolve to better meet your needs and serve Canadians into the future? Help us answer these important questions.
The first conversations about this project took place in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic affected how Canadians enjoy museums. Now is the right time to engage on the value and future of museums in Canada.
