Owner description: 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!

The barbie expo is a really amazing exposition. All of the barbie’s are made in their unique way. We can see that all of them were created with hard work and creativity. The fact that most cultures are presented is awesome. Me and my friend really loved this!

I took my 7 year old niece to see the exhibit. She was wowed by the barbie fashion show, the photobooth barbie box, and all the beautiful barbie clothes. She wants to go again...and she's really hoping she wins the giveaway!

A dream come true, I have always had an obsession with Barbies ever since I received my first one as a child. So happy that they have this Barbie Expo in Montreal, when you walk in you see the beautiful showcases of the Barbies and the chandeliers, its really beautiful. As you walk through you see all sorts of Barbies by country, decade, fashion designers, and movies they are really well displayed. You can tell the work and effort that they made to make the outfits the designers and set up the Barbies. Its wonderful to actually get to see the original Barbies I had never seen one before and Barbies that looked like the ones I had as a child and present Barbies too. The Expo has resting areas by the fountain that is in the center and you can even take your picture in Barbie like display boxes. A really fun place to visit and see the history of Barbie up until the present.

I just visited the place of my dreams! I have loved Barbie since I was little, and as I grew older, I started to love and appreciate fashion so much more. The barbies featured, show off designs, from some of the worlds top fashion designers. Such as Christian Louboutin, Oscar de la Renta, Juicy Couture, Armani, and many others. I loved the different dolls from all over the world and seeing the diverse fashions & all of the intricate details on the dresses, shoes, makeup, hair & every added touch, down to the painted fingernails! It’s amazing to see the Barbies on the catwalk as the others snap photos from the audience. I also loved the Barbie boxes that you could take photos in; making you feel like a real-life Barbie girl! Definitely would recommend the Expo to everyone! It was truly an incredible experience, and I can’t wait to visit again!

Free exhibition in a shopping centre. It was quirky and fun but only wasted about half an hour of time. It had babies from films, countries, TV, foods and designers so great if your are into Barbie but I would have paid money for something a bit more.
