This museum is not well advertised to make the most of what it is. The first time we saw it, we thought it was the last place we go, not being French speakers. However, when the Musee de la Civilisation was mostly closed and gave us free entry, we decided to give it a try as it would at least kill some of the time we had planned to spend in there. But we were so glad we did!
The exhibitions were brilliantly put together and organised (one of the only 2 small things that stopped it getting a 5/5 was the lack of guidance through the whole thing - where best to start each floor? Which floor to start on?)
The experience was fascinating and left us with a much better sense of who the Canadians are and where they come from - and the history of the land that we had no idea about.
We spent much more time here than we anticipated, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the opportunity to understand the French-speaking peoples of the continent and how they developed over time.
The other thing that stopped it getting a 5/5 was the lack of headphones - some of the stories only had 2 with English commentary, and as there were 3 of us, it did cause problems at times.
