Special Collections

International collections are drawn from the arts and folk traditions of Europe and Asia, highlighting exquisite Eastern European and Chinese costumes and textiles, and eclectic creations by master crafts persons in ceramic, metal, paper, and wood. Arctic exploration and the search for Franklin are featured in objects recovered from McClintock's and other nineteenth century cache sites. Numismatics features coinage and paper currency of colonial and post-confederation Canada and the Commonwealth and Canadian medallic arts.
