Company Overview:

The Canadian Museum of History originated from a museum established by the Geological Survey of Canada in 1856, which later expanded to include an anthropology division in 1910. In 1927, the company was then renamed the National Museum of Canada. Later, the national museum was later split into several separate institutions in 1968, with the anthropology and human history departments forming the National Museum of Man. After this, the museum was relocated to its present location in Gatineau in 1989 and adopted the name Canadian Museum of Civilization the following year. Lastly, in 2013, the company/museum adopted its current name, the Canadian Museum of History, and saw its mandate modified so further emphasis was placed on Canadian identity and history.
