What a fun exposition! Brought back our love of barbies, but at a whole new level. Clothes were fantastic and I loved the catwalk display! Highly recommend it and it is free!

A treat for Barbie lovers (or for those who want to reminisce about their childhood!)
Dec. 2020
I learned about this exhibition while walking through the mall near Peel. It was truly wonderland for me and I enjoyed looking at all the different kinds of Barbie dolls. My dad came to visit the exhibition too later on and took photos of almost every Barbie doll, and shared them with my sister and I, knowing how much we liked Barbies as kids.

Note: I visited a few years ago (around 2013/2014 but cannot submit a review for that far back)

Went there with my two girls 6 and 12 and both were thrilled, no one other place was equally interesting to both girls, usually their ages activities are very different.

Worth the stop

So if you are even reading this you have a vague interest in Barbie's. That's the most I can say, I played with them as a child. Since I had time, was in the area and the cost is free, it is totally worth the 10-20 mins you might want to take to walk around. If you actually LIKE Barbie or care more than a bit it's a great show. Some of the outfits are very impressive and or entertaining.

Worth visiting!

I didn't have high expectations from the Barbie Expo thinking that it was more targeted towards children but I was pleasantly surprised to find how much I enjoyed it! It's an exquisite collection of Barbies with numerous references to pop culture such as movies (Grease, Gone with the wind, Twilight lol), celebrities such as JLO, Cher, Beyonce, Aubrey Hepburn, Elvis), different countries, brands (yes - Coca Cola, Kate Spade) and other popular references. It's a well planned, extremely detail oriented and a beautiful collection to enjoy if you are visiting Montreal whether it's on your own or with kids. The best part is that admission is free and the expo is located on level 2 of the Les Cours Mont-Royal mall which is easy to access in downtown. You can be done in a hour or less depending on how much time you want to spend here. There is a photo booth as well if you want to have a picture taken. Just ensure you have a mask as they required inside the mall.

I love Barbies so this was just the expo I needed to visit. so many different Barbies that I did not know were out there. There is a Barbie Box that you can get inside and take a picture. One Barbie Box for adults and one for little kids. We had so much fun at this exhibit . A must visit if you love Barbies best of all its free.

If you like Barbie, if she was, or is, a part of your childhood - take a look! This is not the Barbie I remember, and is exactly the Barbie I remember! It is a small exhibit to walk around in, but Barbie is after all, small.
But in this small space there are soooooo many Barbies, beautiful, stunning, varied..........and a nice display of the newer "every shape" Barbie. You can't help but enjoy the memories as you connect to the vast array; TV shows, famous personalities, gorgeous gowns and everyday styles over many decades. I don't think I have ever taken so many pics in just one place, and enjoyed it so much.

a great place to spend an hour looking at the various barbies through time. Seeing the various outfits and collaborations is great. Make sure you leave a donation to keep this free entrance display going
