Technology in Our Lives

Technology in Our Lives is an exhibition that explores the complex relationships Canadians have and have had with their household technologies since the end of the Second World War. From small, hand-held tools like cutlery and irons to large appliances like refrigerators and the family car, our lives are constantly shaped by the technologies we use in our homes. These technologies reveal so much about who we are, what we value, and the possibilities and limitations afforded to us by technology.

Tiny House

The museum’s Tiny House is an immersive experience that allows visitors the opportunity to think about the realities of living in a home no larger than 30 m². While living in a Tiny House might mean lower upfront and maintenance costs, and less of an impact on the environment, it certainly presents challenges to homeowners.
