Museums have something to say. Canadians trust museums to tell the truth about our shared history. Museums are a place for dialogic learning where ideas are communicated openly with the goal of creating dialogue that leads to empathy and mutual understanding. Museums can be civic spaces for productive and respectful discourse at a time when seemingly irreconcilable points of view dominate our daily lives.
Reconsidering Museums has resources to help your museum learn more about reframing the conversation about museums, truth-telling, and perspective-taking. Find the toolkit here.
