  • For a free expo in a shopping mall, it was great! Way better than I would have expected. My daughter and even my son found things of interest. The life-sized Barbie doll boxes made for great pictures and souvenirs. Definitely worth doing if already in town or nearby but if you go to Montreal only for that, you might find the experience a little short-lived. Happy to have visited while we can.
  • This might be the single best spot in Montreal for people-watching, which is saying a lot given that Montreal has a lot of top spots for that. The variety of people who will take time to walk through this Expo is simply stunning. Make a game out if it - extra points if the incongruous person is taking a selfie with a wedding-dress Barbie.
