Museum of Civilization isn't alone...

Where do old museum exhibitions go to die? A decade from now some Canadian journalist is going to ask this question, and perhaps write an article quite like this one by John Kelly in the Washington Post. But while Kelly's article about the National Museum of American History is wistful, my guess is that the one to be written about the Canadian Museum of Civilization - and what happened to its exhibits when it became the Museum of Canadian History - might be a tad more vitriolic.

Still, it's interesting to see that what is happening in Ottawa doesn't happen in a vacuum.
