February 29 to March 7, 2020
Outdoor and indoor activities for the entire family
350 Place Royal, Old Montréal

For a third year in a row, Pointe-à-Callière is the place to be in Old Montréal for a fantastic week of March Break activities! The Museum is giving families a range of indoor and outdoor activities that will stimulate and satisfy their curiosity.

Free outdoor activities

Every day from 11 am to 4 pm, the outdoor site will come alive with the colours and rhythms of Peru! Inside our pyramid, you can find cultural and historical activities related to the temporary The Incas, Treasures of Peru exhibition at Pointe-à-Callière.

A historical activity will show young and old alike the richness of Inca history and culture, their mysterious way of life, and their clothes and funeral ceremonies. Visitors can also handle reproductions of artifacts.

If you love music, don't miss our Peruvian percussion workshop that nurtures musical awareness and team spirit. Visual art workshops are also on the agenda, including the creation of a collective textile work inspired by Peruvian colours and shapes.

Finally, you can fall for the woolly charms of alpacas, the magnificent animals that symbolize Inca culture. Staff from La vie en Alpaga farm will be outside the museum with at least three alpacas every day to tell you all about alpaca wool, from shearing to spinning.

Indoor activities (included with a Museum ticket)

If you want to warm up, you can attend a workshop inside the Museum between 1 pm and 4 pm every day. Get the children's activity booklet for a fun visit to the exhibition and create a work of art inspired by pre-Columbian and Inca civilizations.

When a break is in order, take advantage of our reading and cinema corner! Go on an adventure with our selection of children books and comic books or sit back and enjoy the entire first season of the series The Mysterious Cities of Gold.

At Pointe-à-Callière, come experience a beautiful week of winter under the sun of Peru!
