The Musée de la civilisation collection includes more than 225,000 items that tell stories about our past and the world we live in today.

For all their diversity, they have one thing in common: they elicit strong emotions, from nostalgia and even aversion to awe.

How were these items chosen over time? What guides today's choices for the future of the collection? Musée de la civilisation invites you to help shine a light on yesterday's treasures and make the case for those of tomorrow. Because the museum collection is all about you!
