It’s Your Move!
Board games: Larger than life
The family exhibition It’s Your Move! Board Games: Larger Than Life –the McCord Museum’s 10th toy exhibition– takes visitors on a journey into the popular world of board games. This participatory exhibition is presented by Télé-Québec in conjunction with Randolph.
In three entertaining worlds, let yourself get caught up in the spirit of the game and take part in a fantastic adventure fraught with obstacles. Children are asked to choose a game piece and set off on a mission to free Yasmine and Sacha, two kids who’ve been catapulted into a giant board game! Games of chance, along with strategy and challenge games, are the focus of this interactive exhibition featuring around 180 toys and board games.
Throughout the exhibition, some of the toys on display hint at popular board games. While a wrench from 1935–45 reminds us of Clue, a miniature iron harks back to Monopoly… The oldest object on display, a jewellery case from the Museum collection, dates from 1828.
An exhibition custom made for children ages 3 to 9 and their parents.
Admission to the Museum is free for children 12 and under.
To round out the experience: treasure hunts, interactive activities and lots more!
Discover the exhibition through the eyes of our young visitors! Comments given during the Opening on December 7, 2019.
