Join us for our newest exhibition highlighting the history of shoemaking traditions, many of which are slowly disappearing. The exhibition will feature field trips that have brought a wealth of in-depth information to the Museum. Visitors can learn from the voices of the makers, see the images of their processes and amaze in the diversity of traditional footwear reflecting a variety of world cultures.
The world’s largest celebration of video games making its first Canadian appearance, Game On 2.0 features game design, development, and production including multiplayer games, handheld devices, original concept and character art, and the history’s most influential arcade machines. Visitors will experience more than 60 years of gaming entertainment and technology; from the very first commercial coin-operated game to the latest in virtual reality and 3D gaming.
Under The Big Top. Welcome back to the good old days when the circus came to town. Tightrope walkers will have you holding your breath; see the mouse cleaning up after the elephant; a lion being manicured and fanned by baby chicks; bouncing balls swinging off a trapeze and oops... when they fall - we send in the best act of all - the Clowns! Watch out for the banana peel and the strong man as someone may get shot right out of a cannon!
For every one who loves the CIRCUS!
A great production to give that special someone a gift certificate too!
Celebrate your special occasion, anniversary or birthdays. Have your picture taken with the cast under our Big Top. Fun for the whole family! 416-532-1137

Toronto Zoo: The wait is finally over ... the giant pandas are here … and their exhibit opens May 18, 2013! Come see giant pandas Er Shun and Da Mao! Giant pandas live in a few mountain ranges in central China. They once lived in lowland areas, but farming, forest clearing, and other development now restrict giant pandas to the mountains. The giant panda is listed as endangered in the World Conservation Union's (IUCN's) Red List of Threatened Animals. There are about 1,600 left in the wild. Nearly 300 pandas live in zoos and breeding centers around the world, mostly in China.
