Spring is a time of new ideas and creative exploration. This Awesome Sunday, join us for a fun-filled day of imaginative activities for the whole family. Sign up for a family dance workshop with the Ottawa Dance Directive, get creatively messy in the Studio, tinker in the Factory, and build the structure of your dreams with blue blocks in the Kaleidoscope gallery, where infants and toddlers can also enjoy soft play structures.


Awesome Neanderthals

How do you stack up beside a Neanderthal? The answers might surprise you! Prehistoric humans are coming to the Museum this summer in the special exhibition Neanderthal.
