Free activity

On the pedestrian path surrounding the Museum, an activity will be held to commemorate the Great Peace of Montréal which was signed on August 4, 1701, on the Pointe-à-Callière site. Families will be invited to join indigenous craftspeople to learn about a symbol of peace—the wampum—and will have an opportunity to design their own personal pictogram inspired by the symbolism of the indigenous diplomats’ signatures. A wonderful activity for children!
