VMC Exhibit - Highlights of Canadian Collections

The "Highlights of Canadian Collections" project is a broad survey of Canadian heritage represented in museums by collections of fine arts, ethnology, history, natural sciences, and archaeological sites. Twenty-nine museums have each selected 10 to 15 images from their collections and have provided a photograph of their institution. In addition to being used in this project, the images will be added to the National Inventories and to the Guide to Canadian Museums and Galleries.
Also available in French, Vedettes des Collections Canadiennes.
