McCord Museum

How You Can Save History

History is not just about preserving objects, it's about telling stories. The McCord is a public research and teaching museum that preserves our collective past - over 1,451,000 objects, images and manuscripts, irreplaceable reflections of the social history and material culture of Montreal, Quebec and Canada. FFunction created an infographic that tells the story of the museum itself; the number of visitors (over 100,000 each year), the number of outreach programs (23), and the square footage of climate-controlled storage space to preserve historic artefacts for future generations (20,000). These numbers tell a compelling story about the museum's involvement in its community and the need for financial support to continue its dynamic, high quality exhibits.
