New Exhibits for the New Year at Niagara Falls History Museum Fakes & Forgeries: Yesterday and Today, is a ROM-produced travelling exhibition. The interactive exhibition presents 115 real and fake objects that run the gamut from historical specimens and cultural artifacts, to household items and designer name brands. Visitors of all ages are invited to guess which objects are real and which are clever fakes. There is also educational information about pirated computer software as well as a section on counterfeit currency. Visitors learn how to tell authentic pieces from sly forgeries and discover the fascinating lengths forgers will take to hoodwink the unwary. Art-of-Fact brings previously unexplored stories of the War of 1812 to life through contemporary visual art installations. Five artists of distinct ethno-cultural background have created works that explore our hidden histories. Art-of-Fact is funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Niagara Region through the Cultural Capitals of Canada program. Additional funding is provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
