The Canadian Museum of Civilization (Musee de la Civilisation) is a fun way to engage in many cultures. As the most popular museum in Canada, the attraction’s permanent exhibits highlight all aspects of Canada, from geographical to cultural artifacts. There are several interactive exhibits created especially for children including Miou, the Egyptian stone talking cat, Medieval dress-up stations and hands-on science exhibits. Children with the tendency to ask many questions will have fun answering their own questions as they go through each exhibit. Although many of the Museum of Civilization exhibits are described in French, the visual aspect is still entertaining and educational.
