On top of its array of shops and services, Metropolis at Metrotown is also known for hosting dazzling, engaging, and interactive exhibits, like the upcoming Canadian Compass: Adventures in Every Direction.

Canadian Compass: Adventures in Every Direction

When: June 12, 2017 to July 3, 2017
Where: Metropolis at Metrotown Grand Court (4700 Kingsway, Burnaby)

Canadian Compass: Adventures in Every Direction is an interactive, virtual reality 360° exhibit that takes shoppers on a cross-country adventure and allows them to experience the sights and sounds of Canada’s iconic landscapes.

To launch the celebration, Metropolis hosted official Canadian Citizenship Ceremony earlier this week in the Grand Court where 30 new Canadians took their oath of citizenship and were sworn in by a judge.

The free exhibit, which takes shoppers on a 2-minute journey from the crashing waves of Niagara Falls to the rugged Rockies, to Northern Lights in the Northwest Territories, is open to the public daily from 12:00pm-7:00pm in the Grand Court.

During the 3-week exhibit, shoppers will have plenty of opportunities to receive free Canada 150 giveaways and snap selfies with Canada’s iconic landscapes. Visitors can donate and print digital postcards on the spot at Metropolis’ photo booth, with all proceeds being donated to Burnaby Community Services. In addition, all proceeds from the Metropolis Express train will be donated to Burnaby charities.

Shoppers are also encouraged to drop by one of Metropolis’ contest kiosks to enter for a chance to win a grand prize $1,000 shopping spree or one of three weekly prizes of a $250 Metropolis at Metrotown gift card.
