I was looking on NBoC's website and I found out that they are holding this exhibit in the CBC Museum. Has anyone been to this exhibit? IS it worth it? It is to be running until fall.

Here's the website:

I have visited exhibition and I have to say that it's not very big.
However, it's definitely worth visiting- there are some beautiful photographs from archives of NBoC (also some costumes, little corner of the set of Sleeping Beauty, etc).
You can also see an interactive station that plays little bits of old TV shows featuring some of famous dancers of the company explaining different basic ballet steps.
The most interesting part of exhibition are documentary films of different NBoC ballets from CBC archives and sometimes documentaries about the company ( there is schedule of these documentaries for the entire month at the exhibition and I'm not sure if it is also posted on the website).
Although exhibition is small, you'll definitely have fun visiting it :)

I haven't been yet either, but I plan on checking it out while I'm in that area. It's free anyways, so I'd think that it's worth a visit.
