Families are important for the Museum, and we try to offer a varied range of original and creative activities for them.

Don’t miss the interpreted tours, the permanent exhibition Pirates or Privateers?, Archaeo-adventure workshop, annual events like the Port Symphonies and the 18th-Century Public Market, seasonal activities like Jack O'Lantern: Halloween at Pointe-à-Callière and Who Is the Real Santa Claus?, and special activities organized for March break and lots more! If you’re looking for a truly memorable place for a children’s birthday party, talk to us!

A few practical tips

See our Visitor information and consult the Hours and rates section for all the details you need to organize your visit.

It is forbidden to eat or drink in the exhibition rooms of the Museum but an all-new area in the Ancienne-Douane building—the Saputo Lunch Room, designed to look like an inn—has been made available for use by families. There they will find lunch and rest spaces (no food for sale on site). On weekdays, please take note that the seatings of the Saputo Lunch Room are offered in priority to school groups visiting the Museum.

Please note that children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult when visiting the Museum.

Enjoy your visit!
