About
This is not Barbie as you once knew her! The Barbie Expo, conveniently located in the heart of downtown, in Les Cours Mont Royal, Montreal’s most prestigious upscale shopping mall, is a brilliant and exciting way to showcase the haute couture fashion available at the exclusive flagship boutiques within the mall. The stunning display houses over 1000 dolls, and is the largest permanent Barbie doll Expo in the world! A truly incredible selection of world-renowned designers have magnificently fashioned breathtaking outfits for every possible occasion—all of them modeled by the 11.5 inch fashion icon herself. Admission is free. Designers on display include Christian Dior, Donna Karan, Armani, Ralph Laurent, Vera Wang, Bill Blass, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Louboutin, Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera, Bob Mackie, and many other authentic fashion all-stars!

We were walking along when my wife (her name is Barbie) spotted the Barbie Expo sign. My Barbie being a Barbie doll fan since childhood decided we were going in. No way was I going to object, so I found a nice place to sit and watch a football game on my phone while my Barbie walked among the hundred (yes, hundreds) of Barbie dolls costumed to reflect different cultures, fashion styles and eras, professions, and events. There were Barbies of all ages, ethnicities, and races. There were fancy Barbies and casual Barbies. It was a seemingly endless display of probably every Barbie ever created (and where did they all come from?). There was even a photo booth you could go into and have your picture taken pretending to be a new-in-box Barbie doll. My wife wandered for an hour, I watched the football game until my phone died. My team won. My wife saw all her childhood Barbie's. It was a great day.

A must for any Barbie fan or collector. Hundreds of Babies, perhaps just about all of the collectors' series. I had no idea there were so many and so varied. Nicely displayed behind glass. Plus a charming mechanical catwalk with Barbies in the audience.

A VERY GOOD display of Barbies in many aspects. Very professional and a JOY to see. And free; what else could we ask? It’s inside a “mall”; on the second floor at the “back” of the floor.

We spent a wonderful hour at this expo.

Someone has spent a huge amount of time putting this together and it works brilliantly, with Barbie costumes from all over the world and from some of the top fashion designers too.

Well worth an hour out of the day.

. . . and its free, unlike the Basilica.

We had a fun short visit to Barbie Expo. I have never own a Barbie , never bought a Barbie for my daugher. But always facinated by the costumes that Barbie wears, very intricate and sophisticated. The Expo has an extensive display of costumes of different nationalities and by various well known brands and designers.
Worth a visit, and most of all is free !!!!!

Just dropped in as myself and my wife were passing by and the expo had been visited by our grand daughter a couple months prior. Interesting exhibit with 400-500 Barbies ( rough count) so more extensive than anticipated.

If you have any interest at all in Barbie and Barbie fashions, you need to go here and you will not be disappointed. Free admission so you really have to lose. If you are like my two late teen daughters, you will love it!

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.
