  • I never owned a Barbie, but that did not diminish me from thoroughly enjoying this exhibit. And free to boot. From my photos you can tell I really enjoyed the "celebrity" section.

  • This is an excellent exhibit to visit. It is free admission and takes about an hour to see it all without feeling rushed. So many different barbies in all kinds of genres. Well worth your time to...

  • The Barbie Expo was NOT on my list of things to do while in Montreal but my wife and daughters wanted to check it out. First of all, it was FREE, so that was awesome. Secondly, it was great! I never expected so many Barbies and such a variety of Barbies that I never knew existed.I especially loved all the recognizable "celebrity" Barbies. Very cool and a fun thing to see, and beautifully displayed.
  • Absolutely stunning work. The exhibition is free so when you're taking a stroll downtown pop into the expo and look at all the hard work the artists did to recreate these iconic looks. It's a permanent exhibit but it's been up for two year now, don't know how long it will stay up!
