TORONTO, Nov. 2 /CNW/ - The Canada Science and Technology Museum is consulting Canadians on creating a new state-of-the art facility that illustrates the ongoing relationships between science, technology and the transformation of Canadian society.
Representatives of The Canada Science and Technology Museum will be in Calgary on November 4 and 5, 2009 and available to discuss this exciting new project.
The Museum, currently housed in a converted bakery in Ottawa, can display only a tiny fraction of Canada's vast collection of artifacts related to transportation, natural resources, communications, space, energy, manufacturing and industry. After forty-two years in temporary accommodations, this unique national institution needs to find a permanent home for the collection and the multitude of programs and products that reach Canadians where they are.
The vision is for a new Museum that fulfils its national mandate with enhanced access to the collection, engagement with partners, and sharing knowledge through programs and compelling visitor experiences.
During the consultation process, individuals and organizations are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas about what the new Canada Science and Technology Museum should be.
