An enhanced experience of Musée de la civilisation and its exhibitions
My MCQ, the Museum's official Web app, has everything it takes to provide you with a more interesting, interactive experience tailored to your interests and tastes. Enhance your visit to the Museum and explore its collections and exhibitions through augmented reality and enriched, exclusive content.

The Jaguar God has played the Mayas a trick. Think you can face his challenges? Your adventure begins at the Maya exhibition entrance!

It is time to embark on the trail of the Mayas, who have been living in South America for over 5,000 years. Team up with the Frog to solve the Jaguar's challenges. Your mission: uncover the fragments that make up the glyph he stole, and help the Mayas remember their history. You will have to make 8 stops in the jungle. Along the way, you will meet gods and animals, discover pyramids and treasures, as well as decipher mysterious drawings.

This interactive search-and-find is available only in the Maya exhibition. It is intended for children aged from 7 to 12. Children under 7 can play with help.

Ah, the fun of fishing! The fresh air, the woods, the slimy worms… and the black flies? But you don't need to get your socks wet today! Come try a new experience with both feet on solid ground. Will you catch a legendary fur-bearing perch? Your adventure starts at the fishing camp!

This game invites you on a fishing expedition right here in the Musée de la civilisation! With a little help from Dory, a Sépaq guide, choose your tackle and lures, and set off on your adventure. Seven interactive stops will help you (re)discover the colorful world of freshwater fishing.
