Don’t miss this rare chance to view artifacts recently recovered from the HMS Erebus, on display at the Canadian Museum of History this weekend only. The micro-exhibit features objects recovered during the recent Canada Park’s expedition in the High Arctic to research the famed Sir John Franklin shipwreck. Parks Canada staff will be on site to answer your questions.
The exhibit will be open to the public May 14–18, 2015 at the W.E. Taylor Salon
Canadian Museum of History, Gatineau, Quebec. (The museum is located right across the river from Ottawa).
They also say that in 2017, the Museum, in collaboration with Parks Canada, will present a special exhibition on the search for the Northwest Passage and Sir John Franklin’s disastrous final voyage of 1845.
