The New Canada Science and Technology Museum
Technology in Our Lives Gallery
The Canada Science and Technology Museum wants you to share pictures of your refrigerator and your house to be displayed in the Technology in Our Lives Gallery. This new gallery explores how we transform technologies and how our lives are shaped by our daily interactions with technology.
Canada’s diversity is rich, and to demonstrate our varied culture and geography, the Museum wants to know how you live with your tech. The façade of your refrigerator, or FridgeScape, may be a snapshot of your daily life. The way your home is designed and built depends on when, how and where it was created. It’s not high-tech, it’s life-tech, and a reflection of who we are as Canadians.
This is your science and technology, so share it with your Museum!
Your images may be incorporated into the new Museum, opening November 2017.
Take a picture of:
- your FridgeScape – the outside of your fridge
- your HomeScape – the outside of your home
Share your pictures for a chance to win a Two-Year Household Membership:

How your pictures will be used:
Your pictures may be selected to be projected in the Technology in Our Lives gallery at the Canada Science and Technology Museum and may be shared via the Museum’s social media channels. They may also be included in the Museum collection as part of the domestic technology collection.
