c̓əsnaʔəm, The City Before the City, an unprecedented series of exhibitions about Musqueam's ancient landscape and living culture has won the 2015 Governor General's History Alive! award for excellence in museums. A unique collaboration from the Museum of Vancouver, Museum of Anthropology, Musqueam Cultural Education Resource Centre and the University of Waterloo, the joint exhibition was designed to promote discussion about indigenous history, and to raise awareness of the significance of c̓əsnaʔəm for the Musqueam people and Vancouver.

Explore various aspects of c̓əsnaʔəm through artefacts, oral history, photographs and new technologies such as 3-D printing at the exhibition. The City Before the City continues until January 2020 at the Museum of Vancouver and until January 2016 at the other two locations.
