Bringing History to Life

My VisitList is a selection of three historic places across the country that have brought history to life for me in very different and exciting ways. As a living museum, Kings Landing recreates the 19th century way-of-life in rural New Brunswick. In Ontario, the McMichael Gallery’s collection shares the imaginative and creative life of notable Canadian and Indigenous artists. Finally, Manitoba’s Exchange District is teeming with lively contemporary art, culture and entertainment amongst a neighbourhood of historical significance.
