CMHR Jumps On the Throwback Thursdays Bandwagon

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

There’s a trend on social media that’s gained in popularity over the last year: “Throwback Thursdays”. In case you’re not familiar with it, quite simply, on Thursdays people post photos from their past on social media like Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook. The trend is quickly catching on in other social media networks and some also include videos from the past.

We’ve decided to join in.

Over the last few years, we’ve been documenting with photos the Museum’s evolution from the time of its conception to today:

Construction of the Museum begins

Construction is ongoing inside the Museum. (Summer, 2013)


We also have many photos of people and events:

Amazing feet event
The CMHR held an event at The Forks to commemorate an amazing find during the archaeological dig on the future site of the CMHR: an 800-year-old footprint. (June, 2009)
Pink Shirt Day

So if you don’t already, follow us on Twitter, Flickr and Facebook and see more of our milestones and events. Meet some of the people who’ve been involved and who’ve helped shape this project. 

We’d also love to hear from you!

Were you there when the Queen visited the site back in2010? Did you take your cousin Pierre on a perimeter tour when he was visiting from France last year? Or maybe you attended an event, like “Amazing Feet,” hosted by the Museum in 2009? Post your photo on Twitter, Instagram or Flickr and tag them with #CMHRtbt and they might end up on our Facebook page! Don’t forget to give a brief description including when the photo was taken.
