This was the most interesting museum I have been to in a while. There were informative displays about life in Quebec, Canadian products, and product design. Our favorite part was the exhibit dealing with perception and memory. It was fascinating! Great wa6 to spend the afternoon!

Much of the exhibit area was on the dark side. Not all the exhibition space was open in late March. A bit pricey considering that. Fine museum store which you can access without buying tix. Coat check costs $2 each. Menu for cafe looked interesting.

I loved the Tintin exposition at the Musee de la Civilisation. The expositions change often, which is nice for locals.

We spent most of our day at the Musee de la Civilsation and due to half term the museum was really geared up with loads of children activities. The dressing up activity in the basement was with spectacular and well made outfits also for adults. The key mystery exhibition on the first floor was really a thrilling experience for the kids, and also the optical illusion room. A museum with the kids in the center.
