The Telephone Pavilion is adjacent to the Man the Explorer Theme complex on Ile Sainte-Hélène. It is easily reached by Métro or Expo-Express.
"Canada 67", one of the pavilion attractions, is a thrilling Walt Disney film in "Circle-Vision 360°". This realistic presentation gives the viewer the feeling of "being there" at outstanding events and scenes throughout Canada.
Among the highlights of the most ambitious show of present and future communications ever staged by Canada' telephone industry are:
The Enchanted Forest where young visitors sit on toadstools to phone their favorite cartoon characters.
The Picturephone Set lets you see as well as talk with the person on the other end of the telephone line.
Logic and Memory Games use the principles of telephone switching. Play Tic-Tac-Toe or have your age guessed. See how you score on Telequiz.
The Future looks forward to fascinating telephone developments, and innovations for shopping and banking.
