MOA’s Online Collection
Featuring over 1000 historical objects and photographs from our permanent collection, MOA’s Online Collection is a searchable database representing the range, diversity, and core of our collection from the museum’s beginning to recent acquisitions.
“Our goal is to make our collections more accessible and available to the public while sharing knowledge, research, and cultural understanding. Digitalized objects in MOA’s collection represent a wide variety of important aspects of Canadian history.”
