The Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation, CMCC (composed of the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Canadian War Museum), is pleased to present an evolving searchable catalogue of its collections. Types of artifacts found in our database include: archaeological specimens, aboriginal arts and artifacts, folk art, furniture, war art, military objects, glass, porcelain, textiles and much more.

We offer you two options for exploring the collection:

• Search the on-line catalogue of our collection. This catalogue now contains more than 200,000 objects and will continue to grow until the majority of our more than a million artifacts are included.

• Browse along the aisles of a virtual storage space and you'll discover a pre-selected sample (approximately 1500 items) of the wide range of objects to be found in the CMCC's collection.

This catalogue is presented for research and personal use only.
For any other use, visitors to the web site of the Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation must obtain prior written authorization from the CMCC before reproducing or transmitting any image or text in the catalogue. Anyone who engages in unauthorized reproduction, alteration or transmission of any image or text will be subject to legal proceedings.

The artifact collection of the CMCC is very diverse. The subject matter of some of the artifacts could offend certain people. A few of them depict graphic images of war, violence or are of an adult nature. Viewer discretion is advised. The collection also contains culturally sensitive artifacts which are not presented in the catalogue.

The CMCC has the mandate to preserve, on behalf of present and future generations of Canadians, a vast storehouse of almost one million artifacts and works of art. These artifacts are culturally important facets of Canadian history and heritage. They are the witness of the past and present of Canadians of all origins and reflect the Canadian identity.
