In conjunction with the My 2,000-Year Old Double exhibition, an invitation to visit, or revisit, illustrious historical figures.

Photos : Red Méthot - Icône, 89-1345-2, 89-1194, 89-1303-2, 89-1388-2, 89-1217, 89-1254-2, 89-1175-2, 89-1486, 2007-75-1-1

Originally presented as life-sized figures, these sculptures were part of the scenes at the wax museums in Montréal and Québec City (the Musée de cire de Montréal and the Musée de cire de Québec) until their respective closures in 1989 and 2007. Thanks to two significant donations in these same years, Musée de la civilisation inherited these elements of cultural heritage, and they were added to the wax collection from the Musée antique de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, which was given to Musée de la civilisation by the Ministère des Affaires culturelles du Québec in 1988.

Can you figure out who they are (without peeking)? You might even find your own double!
