What is Myseum?
Myseum is your Toronto museum. Our engaging programs and experiences showcase the history, culture and people that represent Toronto’s unique place in Canada and the world. Given our mandate, we are very proud to host dozens of free events, exhibits and workshops around the Greater Toronto Area and to provide much-needed funding to creators doing the same. By supporting Myseum, you are directly impacting the arts in your community—our community. In short, you are the “my” in Myseum.

SUPPORT OUR PROGRAMS
Myseum Intersections is an annual festival that explores intersectional perspectives of Toronto through collaborative exhibits, events, workshops, and tours. Each year, we offer grants to artists, collectives and community groups to help their projects reach their full potential.
Revisionist Toronto, our 2019 exhibition, revisits and re-imagines the dominant narratives that shape our understanding of the city through a festival of collaborative exhibits and events. This exhibition will explore lost or hidden Toronto stories that have been paved over and forgotten, and how we can reclaim those histories.
Since our founding in 2015, Myseum Connects has helped strengthen ties between community leaders from small and major organizations through discussion panels and workshops. Connects is also a wonderful networking opportunity for young, creative professionals looking to find their place in the city’s active cultural sector.
Myseum Presents is an annual collaborative exhibition and showcase presented by Myseum. Focused on a particular topic tied to the history of Toronto, Myseum Presents combines thought-provoking exhibits with engaging workshops, tours, events and panels that challenge conventional historical narratives.
Our 2018 exhibition, Discounted Histories, explored the movement of goods, services, and ideas that form Toronto’s retail landscape. From specialized artisans to mass production to mail-order catalogues to online shopping, Discounted Histories reassessed part of Toronto’s existing historical narrative by bringing to light overlooked, unseen, and forgotten histories.
