Awesome Arctic

Sunday, January 17
Grand Hall and First Peoples Hall
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Explore Inuit communities, culture and language during an amazing day of Arctic-themed activities for all ages, including an artifact hunt, Inuktitut lessons, crafts and more.

Head north with your family for an amazing day of discovery about Inuit culture. Step onto our giant map of the Arctic, and travel to the communities across this vast landscape, exploring fun facts along the way. Listen to the Inuktitut language being spoken, learn its basic alphabet, and let our special Inuk guests show you how to write your name on a take-home craft. Pick up an Artifact Hunt activity sheet and search for highlighted objects in the First Peoples Hall — a great way to discover our collections, and find out where these interesting artifacts came from, who made them and why. Then pop into the IMAX® Theatre for a screening of The Great North, a documentary that takes viewers on a fascinating journey through the northernmost regions of Quebec, Labrador and Sweden, where ingenuity has allowed people to adapt to a harsh yet rich environment.

Please note that all events are subject to change.
