Montrealers have been spellbound by the mechanical displays in Ogilvy’s department store window every Christmastime since 1947. The Bavarian scenes, custom made by the German toy manufacturer Steiff, feature dozens of handcrafted animals working and playing. Similar to those of department stores in other parts of the world, like Macy’s in New York or the Galeries Lafayette in Paris, these window displays are among the last of their kind in North America. The Mill in the Forest can be seen from outside the museum on Victoria St. (near Sherbrooke). Free of charge. The Enchanted Village will be housed inside the museum. Children age 12 and under are admitted free of charge and receive a complimentary treasure hunt activity sheet and backpack containing interactive materials for The Adventure at the Museum, both available at the Admissions Desk.
Adults $19, FREE for children ages 12 & under
