Awesome Victorian

Sunday, February 24
Canadian History Hall Lobby
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 and learn about being a Victorian gentleman, or create your own fan to send your special someone a message from across a crowded room. 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 in our photo booth.


Please note that all events are subject to change.
