LIFE IN THE EMPRESS OF IRELAND ERA

Back in 1914, what did you put on your toast in the morning? Did teens wear braces? Did toilet paper exist? Fourteen questions asked from the perspective of a young person today provide insight into life in the early 20th century. Designed for children aged 9 to 12, this exhibit takes a fresh, surprising, at times funny and at times moving look at daily life barely a century ago.

DID THE MOVIES HAVE SPECIAL EFFECTS?

By 1914, French filmmaker Georges Méliès had already developed several cinematographic tricks: making objects appear and disappear, multiple exposures, transformations, etc. A device recreates the magic of the special effects in his films by allowing the visitor to become part of a movie scene. The results of this fun experiment are broadcast on a screen for all visitors to see.
