Toys2

Between November 18, 2011, and March 11, 2012, the McCord Museum presents Toys 2, a magical interactive family exhibition that will delight young and old alike. Building on the resounding success of last year's exhibition, Toys 2 is back in force with a brand new concept that will not only allow visitors to discover hundreds of toys from the Museum's collection, but will also take them on a fascinating hunt...for mice! Toys 2 features a rousing game of cat and mouse for winter fun, where visitors, outfitted with a magnifying glass, will be called on to help the cat in her chase via four entertaining themes. It's a thoroughly engaging way to view more than 200 toys (a few of which date back almost 150 years) drawn from the some 11,000 treasures that are part of the Museum's collections. Admission is free for children 12 and under. See you there!
