Experience Much More Munsch at the Canadian Children’s Museum!

Gatineau, Quebec, October 6, 2011—Visitors are welcome into the delightful world of renowned Canadian children’s author Robert Munsch this fall at the Canadian Children’s Museum. Much More Munsch is an engaging interactive exhibition presented until April 9.

“For more than 30 years, Robert Munsch has enchanted children with his fantastical stories reflecting the joys and challenges of everyday family life,” said Mark O’Neill, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation. “Much More Munsch allows visitors to go into Robert Munsch’s home and explore his world through a range of activities that engage all their senses. The exhibition will arouse young people’s curiosity, stimulate their creativity and encourage them to develop their language and reading skills.”

Robert Munsch draws inspiration from real children and true stories to invent his characters and their adventures. The writer uses language, sounds and sketches to compose a story, and that is exactly the experience that Much More Munsch aims to give visitors of all ages.

Each of the exhibition’s six sections represents an aspect of the author’s home and features interactive presentations that enable visitors to explore how Munsch actually creates, writes and communicates. They will be able to enter into the writer’s imagination by way of his front door, the outside of his house, the garden of poems, Mortimer’s bedroom, the living room and the kitchen—one after the other.

To complement visitors’ experience of the exhibition themes, the Children’s Museum will offer special programs throughout the fall and winter. These include a parade of visitors dressed as Munsch characters, a marionette show, and different special activities during the holiday season.

Presented in English and French, Much More Munsch is designed for all the family, and especially children ages 5 to 8. The exhibition has been organized jointly by the Manitoba Children’s Museum and the London Regional Children’s Museum, with the assistance of Robert Munsch and his long-time collaborator, illustrator Michael Martchenko. This project has been made possible in part through a contribution from the Museums Assistance Program, Department of Canadian Heritage. It runs at the Canadian Children’s Museum from October 8, 2011 to April 9, 2012.

The Canadian Children’s Museum, one of the Canadian Museum of Civilization’s most popular attractions, provides a creative space for children and families to learn about the world and broaden their cultural experience. Passports in hand, visitors discover one incredible destination after another. Whether on a visit to homes in the International Village, a trek to a desert pyramid, a jaunt to the Port of Entry to help unload a cargo ship, or a stroll through the bustling Market Bazaar, visitors encounter endless ways to learn about the world and one another.
