Every year, more than 1.2 million people visit the Canadian Museum of History. Among those visitors are dozens of students attending language camp at Destination Canada. Every year our students enjoy visiting the museum, exploring its exciting exhibits, and learning new things about Canada. If you’re considering enrolling your child in language camp this summer, they will even get the chance to explore a brand new exhibit about Canada’s history that is opening on July 1st!
Read on to find out more about why students love to visit the Canadian Museum of History.
1. Students in Summer ESL Courses Love the Museum for all Its Fun Exhibits
The Canadian Museum of History is Canada’s most visited museum for a reason; it always has plenty of unique exhibits waiting to be explored. The museum has five regular exhibitions including the First Peoples Hall, Canadian Stamp Collection, Prehistory, and the Grand Hall. That’s not all, though. In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday this summer, the museum is opening a brand new exhibition called the Canadian History Hall. Students enrolled in summer ESL courses can look forward to learning about Canada’s unique history while they visit this brand new exhibition!
In addition to the permanent exhibitions at the museum, there are also several special exhibits that your teen will be able to visit. For example, the hockey exhibit features an extensive collection of historic hockey memorabilia. Students will also have the opportunity to explore exhibits about gold mining and horse-drawn carriages. One thing is for sure, students are never bored as they tour the museum’s expansive 25,000 square meters of fascinating exhibits!
2. Students in Summer ESL Courses Enjoy Learning About Canada’s First Peoples
One of the reasons students at language summer camp in Canada love visiting the museum is to learn more about the country’s heritage. Canada’s First Peoples, which include First Nations, Métis, and Inuit, have lived on Canadian soil for thousands of years. They are an important part of Canada’s history and national identity. The museum’s First Peoples Hall has over 2,000 artifacts and objects, documents, and pictures that demonstrate the unique culture of Canada’s First Peoples. Your child will get to see amazing artifacts like tools, arrows, and clothing. It’s a must-see exhibit when visiting the Canadian Museum of History.
3. Students Love Practicing English with their New Friends at the Museum
Students love visiting the Canadian History museum because it’s a chance to interact with native English speakers and put their English skills to the test. It’s also a valuable opportunity for students to expand their vocabulary as they encounter words and phrases they haven’t seen before as they learn about 20,000 years of human history.
The museum is not the only opportunity at language camp where students can practice English in a fun setting. While at camp, students participate in many activates—from eco odysseys to scenic city tours and more—that will allow them to practice their English skills with their friends from around the globe!
