Visitors will explore the objects that the people of Niagara feel tell a story about the country they live in. These are personal stories that collectively tell us something about our nation. There is a wide variety of descriptions of transportation, immigration, sports, the military, and much more. Donors, too, are as diverse as their artefacts, from as young as ten years to as accomplished as the wizened world traveller.
It has often been said that the most important thing about an artefact is not its monetary value, its age, or how beautiful it is. The most important thing about an artefact is the story it has to tell. Pieces of Canada tells 150 important stories about our community, our country, and ourselves.
