What legacy would you leave for future generations? What objects symbolize values, lifestyles, inventions, and events of the 20th century?
The Memory Collection is a time capsule of 20 objects depicting the 20th century. At the Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History memorable objects from the past 100 years have been gathered ranging from electronics and vaccines to a copy of the declaration of human rights and a Coke bottle. On May 17, 2000, locked up in a specially made chest, the Memory Collection was hidden under the floor and will remain there unopened until May 17, 2100.
