Spring Break at the Museum


Spring Break at the Museum

This is YOUR Museum! 

This Spring Break come and discover what makes the Museum so great: its collections, architecture, people, history, and so much more.

The Museum belongs to all Canadians, and as stewards we want to share what we do with you. Look for Staff Picks—our favourite objects and spaces—throughout the Museum galleries. We hope they will inspire you and spark some special memories.

And, kids: make sure to bring a special item from your own collection* for display in our unique Pop-Up Museum.  You can learn about conservation techniques that will help you take care of your favourite objects!

All this and lots of other fun activities and surprises lie in store you as you explore YOUR Museum this Spring Break.
