It’s Circus Time at Pointe-à-Callière
February 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until March 6, 2022
From the first European and American circus troops to today’s over-the-top international shows, the circus arts have never stopped evolving. In a colourful and entertaining setting, come explore over 350 objects, some moving and some mind-boggling, that bear witness to this adventure.
AN IMMERSION INTO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE CIRCUS
The ringmaster, the equestrian, the acrobat, the clown, the lion tamer… come learn about these iconic figures of the modern circus and, along the way, meet Philip Astley, Phineas Taylor Barnum, Tom Thumb, the Fratellini clowns, and Jules Léotard. The exhibition also takes you behind the scenes where you will learn about various disciplines of the circus arts, life on tour, the preparation required for a show, and post-circus life.
EXPERIENCE THE CIRCUS AT THE MUSEUM
Climb into a mini clown car, test your balance and coordination, and discover your inner circus artist. A memorable, family-friendly time awaits you!
