A spectacular exhibition

Presented until April 8, 2018, this exhibition developed by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in partnership with DreamWorks Animation opens up on the fabulous world of animated films that are a staple of any childhood...and a delight for parents as well. Have a look inside the world of Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, Trolls, How to Train Your Dragon and other masterpieces, thanks to 350 objects that tell the story of the creative process of these masterminds of cinematography. The exhibition spotlights rare, never-before-seen art, sketches, storyboards and drawings as well as accessories. Discover the techniques of stop-motion animation used in Chicken Run, the musical universe of Trolls and the secrets behind the martial arts scenes in Kung Fu Panda 3. The unique techniques used by DreamWorks, the most important animation studio in the world, are sure to delight visitors.

A complete immersion

In parallel with the exhibition, the Canadian Museum of History has designed a series of activities to make your visit even more sensational. The museum’s Volunteer Interpreter Program leads the special activity for kids: "Trolls and Shrek Story Rolls" featuring workshops and costumes that will help the little ones create their own narrative and build their own adventures. Another activity is the Dragon Egg Hunt, from March 1 to April 1 at the Children’s Museum, where kids are sent on a quest to find all 12 hidden dragon eggs. Drop by the Travel Bureau in the museum to pick up the official Dragon Egg checklist, and if you find all of them, a sweet treat will be waiting for you at the end of the adventure.
