A captivating and uniquely Canadian exhibition commemorating the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II opens January 9th at the Timmins Museum: NEC, 325 Second Avenue in Timmins.
A Queen and Her Country recalls Her Majesty’s first 60 years as Canada’s Head of State, her many royal visits to this country and her personal connection to major events in our recent history.
The exhibition invites visitors to reflect on the Queen’s remarkable journey from young princess to long-serving monarch. It also illuminates Canada’s development as a modern, diverse country with enduring ties to its British heritage and traditions.

The exhibition features about 60 artifacts and a rich assortment of historical images gathered from across the country.
“As Canada’s national museum of human history, we are proud to present this unique, pan-Canadian perspective on Her Majesty’s 60-year reign,” said Mark O’Neill, President and CEO of the Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation.
