Learn about the special mark skating has left on our national identity at Lace up: Canada's Passion for Skating – a new exhibit at the New Iceland Heritage Museum in Gimli!
This travelling exhibit, produced by the Canadian Museum of Civilization, explores the history of skating in Canada, with emphasis on three major sports: figure skating, speed skating, and hockey. It tells the story, both ancient and contemporary, of one of the oldest and most popular recreational and sporting activities in the country.
