Awesome Victorian

Sunday, February 24
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Step into a world of formal manners and hidden messages: the Victorian age of photographic genius William Notman.

It’s an Awesome Sunday fit for Queen Victoria. During this special one-day family event, you’ll make a moustache or create your own fan. As you take in the music of the period, you can also play Victorian games and dress up in Victorian garb. Visit the exhibition Notman, Visionary Photographer for inspiration, and take a perfect Victorian portrait.


Awesome Imagination: Reimagining the Children’s Museum

Sunday, April 14
Canadian Children’s Museum
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Kick off spring with a day of family fun and creative discovery.

Spring is a time of new ideas and fresh thoughts — and the Canadian Children’s Museum wants you and your family to help us reimagine our space. Throughout the Children’s Museum on this Awesome Sunday, you’ll be invited to imagine the future. Post your ideas on the Renewal Tree, show us in the Theatre how you play with costumes, get spectacularly messy in the Studio, or crawl around soft play structures in the Kaleidoscope gallery. The Children’s Museum Renewal Team will be on hand to inspire your family’s discoveries, while encouraging everyone to dream big.


Awesome Neanderthals

Sunday, June 16
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Celebrate the Stone Age in a whole new way!

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. You and your family can travel back tens of thousands of years to explore the Neanderthal world. Learn how Neanderthals made sharp blades from stones. Work a reconstructed archaeological dig, and create cave art.


Please note that all events are subject to change.
