Awesome Medieval

Sunday, August 26
Canadian Museum of History (exterior)
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Experience a taste of rural life during the Middle Ages with a day of traditional games, dancing, cooking and crafts for the whole family.

How did rural people live in medieval times? What did they eat? What pastimes did they enjoy? Find out during this exciting day of family activities, suitable for all ages, in honour of our exhibition Medieval Europe – Power and Splendour. Compete in friendly games of skill, take a dance lesson and help cook some medieval bread. Create your own mini-shield and decorate an embossed tin piece to take home.

In case of rain, the activity will take place in the Grand Hall.


Please note that all events are subject to change.
