Current Feature Exhibit
September 14 – November 23
Hockey is many things — shinny on a frozen pond, the sweat-soaked smell of a locker room, a winning wrist shot, a roaring crowd. But most of all, it is an enduring national passion that brings Canadians together regardless of geography, language, gender or age. Nanaimo Museum is celebrating Canada’s game with a one-of-a-kind travelling exhibition from the Canadian Museum of History and a local hockey history component. Hockey looks at how the sport has influenced our lives, and what that reveals about us as a people.
