#Repost @canwarmuseum ( @get_repost ) ・・・ We are excited for this Thursday’s screening of The Granny Project, April 25 at the Canadian War Museum. There is a special bond that exists between grandmothers and grandchildren, and sometimes it is only grandchildren who can ask the questions no one dares to ask. Three charming 20-something grandsons explore the question of how memory works when they take a unique journey with their grannies to discover their historic and personal legacies through stories from the Second World War. Presented by the Canadian War Museum in partnership with the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Tickets via our website. #Documentary #WarMuseum #Events #Ottawa #OttawaEvents #Film #HotDocs #History #CanadianHistory

In Catholic culture, before the Vatican modernized certain practices, these types of bells were used to mark certain moments in mass, which was given in Latin. On Good Friday, however, they were quieted, replaced by rattles: it was said that the bells had gone to Rome to celebrate Good Saturday. Were the bells’ chimes and the dry sound of rattles part of the soundtrack of your childhood? CMH, A-37 #bells #bell #church #mass #religion #catholic #easter #goodfriday

Does this sculpture remind you of a chapter of history? Before the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms came into effect on this day in 1982, Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau presided over difficult negotiations leading to Canada’s renewed Constitution. Created by Ron Barber around 1980, this folk art depicts Trudeau accompanied by a crew of provincial premiers who are all paddling in different directions.

In 2017, the Canadian Museum of History acquired one of Warhol’s Wayne Gretzky prints as part of its acquisition of the Mike Wilson and Debra Thuet Ultimate Leafs Fan Collection. This print is one of six images revealed by Warhol in 1983. When the Gretzky portraits were revealed in 1983, they were quickly bought by art collectors from around the world, both because they featured a renowned contemporary athlete and because they had the prestige of being Warhol pieces. #nhl #art #pop #nyc #business #hockey #sports #hockeyplayers #instanhl #instaart #instapop #instamuseum #instahockey #instasports #instahockeyplayers

Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope #OTD in 1980. To raise funds for cancer research, the 21-year old ran close to a marathon a day. After 143 days, his illness forced him to stop running. By that time, he was a national icon. His mission and his courage continue to resonate with Canadians and people all over the world today.

#OTD April 8, 1969, the Montreal Expos played their first Major League Baseball game, defeating the New York Mets 11-10. They were the first Canadian team to join the MLB. At the end of the 2004 season the team moved to Washington. Many fans miss having “the Spo’s” in Montréal. This jersey is from Tim Raines’ first season with the Expos in 1981. It shows the team’s original logo. The pants are from his 1986 kit. Raines was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2017. Gary Carter, aka “the kid,” wore this catcher’s mask, chest protector and shin pads during the 1992 season, his last with the team. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003. #instabaseball #instagame #instamlb #expos #montreal #canada #canhistory #canadian #history #baseball #players #halloffame #fame
