Overview

More
Cité de l'énergie presents at Shawinigan Space the exhibition entitled Musée du Premier ministre Jean Chrétien Le Canada dans le monde. The Prime Minister of Canada received numerous gifts during his official duties. These items, from around the world, were given during meetings and international events with other Heads of State or government officials, some were given to the Prime Minister while travelling across the country, and others by elected officials, representatives of different organizations and well as by citizens. This incredible variety of gifts, which relate a part of history, highlight Canada's place in the world. Furthermore, they are a symbolic trace of the stable dialogue among various nations. The Right Honourable Jean Chrétien, former Prime Minister of Canada, mentioned a while ago it would be legitimate to exhibit the numerous gifts he received during his official duties. We then decided to create a museum which would highlight the importance of international relations and reveal the dialogue between different cultures, while offering at the same time an educational dimension; as wished by Mr. Chrétien, a museum that will innovate by constantly enriching its collections.

Very interesting to see all the gifts that Jean Chrétien got as a Prime Minister of Canada as he was travelling abroad, but also a way to get to know him and his work as he traveled in our name.
