Personal Addition #6 – Human Rights Museum

On Thursday I got to go to the Canadian Museum of Human Rights through a field trip; I was’t impressed. The great majority of the space was used for fancy architecture, rather than galleries. The information in the galleries was also presented in poor ways, telling what Canada did, and how Canada helped, even when speaking of global events. That I think is an awful way to show history, through the eyes of a white nation. They’re, everyone here, is so afraid to be exposed to social issues in a way that might put them in a bad light; so we tend to not talk about it. Just cover it with pretty stuff; put on a show. It seems the museum captures that aspect well.
