Quebec Blog #26: Our Highlights: Museum of Civilization Visit

Rob and Ironman at the Museum
In today's Quebec City trip blog, we'll take a quick look at a few of what we considered were some of the highlights in the Museum of Civilization.

INTERESTING EXHIBITS WE ENJOYED - Museum of Civilization opened its doors to the public in December 1988. The museum has many changing exhibits from what we could tell. Three exhibits that we enjoyed were "Dogs and Cats," "Intuit Natives," and "Nano-technology."

NANOTECHNOLOGY -This was a fascinating exhibit because we learned that there's so many things that nanotechnology is already incorporated in or responsible for in our civilization today. Of course, the exhibit also had a Life-Sized Iron Man (the Marvel Comics superhero), so Rob had to get a picture with him.

Cell phone Exhibit: Through the years
CELL PHONES THROUGH THE DECADES - What was sad was that we lived through every since cell phone stage on display in the museum. We felt old. In fact, if you watch the TV Show Murder She Wrote, you'll see phones in a giant box, phones with large antennas and smaller cell phones.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE OLD WHEN... something that you grew up using is in a museum. We saw a charge card slider on display.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
