Treasures of the First Peoples

At all times

On this interactive visit, children explore the exhibition Wearing Our Identity – The First Peoples Collection looking for a doll. With the help of clues, they discover the skills and legends of Indigenous peoples while travelling Canada from north to south and east to west.
