The Avedon Games Collection has been transferred to the Canadian Museum of History.
In 1971, the University established a public museum dedicated to research and the collection, preservation, and exhibition of games and game-related objects from around the world. There were more than 5000 objects in the collection, and a large number of archival documents about games. Public thematic exhibitions were offered in an on-campus venue.
The University closed this museum in 2009 and the Avedon Games Collection, named for its founder Professor Elliott Avedon, was transferred to the Canadian Museum of Civilization – now the Canadian Museum of History.
