I went over to the renamed Museum of History in Gatineau a few days ago to take in a couple of the temporary exhibits. One I thought I would make mention of now, since it closes on the 12th of October, and those in the area with an interest in the subject would want to take it in. The Greek government, in collaboration with four North American museums, has sent a large collection of artifacts on tour, covering thousands of history from Agamemnon to Alexander. No photography was permitted (more's the pity), but the collection was well worth the visit. The tour began in Montreal, and this was the second stop. For my American readers, the exhibit moves to the Field Museum in Chicago starting in November, and in the spring of 2016 it will be on display in the National Geographic Museum in Washington.
Contrasting the ancient with the modern, this is the projection room for the IMAX theatre here at the museum. All that equipment inside is used for the showings of the giant scale documentaries. The theatre always has at least two films running, with showings in English and in French. Some of the previous films that have been shown here through the years are mounted on the wall nearby as permanent posters.
I leave off with this view from the terrace outside the museum. I have more from here, but I'll be leaving that until the end of the month.
