1867: Rebellion & Confederation – April 27 to April 30.

This exhibition takes visitors through a lesser-known story about our country’s birth – three decades of turmoil, negotiation and compromise that sprouted the seeds of democracy and responsible government. Developed by the Canadian Museum of History, it was adapted for its run at the CMHR for Canada’s 150th anniversary.

More than 100 artifacts include weapons, period furniture and clothing, and famous original documents. The Manitoba Museum contributed a 170-year-old Métis saddle with quill and beadwork, and a sword given in 1839 to Métis leader Cuthbert Grant.
