The inspiring history of Canadian theatre

Theatre Museum of Canada

The Theatre Museum of Canada is unique, not only because it has yet to become a bricks and mortar institution (it is already under construction!). It has a collection focused on the history of the Canadian theatre industry, with a particular focus on set design and props. Although the Museum occasionally stages pop-up exhibits around the City of Toronto, it mainly engages through virtual means, meaning the website is of the utmost importance. Currently the site has a simple WordPress design that is easily managed and edited by the very small staff team, but in the long term it can be developed further into a more complex website.

A big focus of the site is the opportunity to search the online collection and to explore the Legend Library, a large repository of videos of interviews from notable names in the Canadian theatre industry.
