Description

Explore 20,000 years of human history and delve into the past of Canadian cultures and civilizations, from the traditions and achievements of the First People to the arrival of the Vikings. Visitors of all ages can travel the world with hands-on exhibits in the Canadian Children’s Museum.

Step into the Grand Hall and admire the largest collection of totem poles in the world, framed by a massive photograph of a forest scene. Wander through a display of First Nations homes to learn about the archaeological digs at pre-historic Tsimshian settlements, immersing yourself in the culture and daily life of the original inhabitants of the Pacific Coast.

In Canada Hall, journey to the east coast for the arrival of the Vikings in Newfoundland and to see how modern life developed through the 19th century. Move west to explore the expansion of the railway system and track Canada’s iconic moments with a look at the country’s postal stamps.

Younger visitors can dive into the cultures of the world with interactive indoor and outdoor displays, costumes, and artifacts from around the globe. Grab a passport for the Great Adventure, then clamber aboard a Pakistani bus, step into a Bedouin tent, and hop into a rickshaw from Thailand. Explore traditional homes from Japan, shop at a Mexican Mercado, and make a tasty, international treat in the Kids’ Café.
