Set off on a mission to the Montréal public market, an urban dig site and archaeology lab and become a Discoverers for a day!
June 29 to August 23, 2019
Discoverers for a day: The Marketplace + FREE lunch room + Archaeo Mission + Multimedia show Generations MTL
Imagine Montréal in the early days, when the public market brought the whole town together. It was a bustling atmosphere, as all the shops and stores laid out their wares in open-air stalls. Each team of children will play the role of a group involved in trade back in those days: farmers, merchants, craftspeople and soldiers. The teams will be given four challenges — games that will help them learn something about the saga of New France. To round out the activity, the teams will trade their goods in.
Free lunch room
A lunch room is available for groups.
From seats overlooking impressive archaeological remains, the multimedia show Generations MTL invites kids to rediscover the history of Montréal through an incredible immersive set.
A captivating mission awaits young participants in our new interactive space, featuring an urban dig site and an archaeology lab. To rise to the rank of apprentice-archaeologist, youngsters must tackle the challenges presented by their mission leader. They’ll have to do research, hone their observation skills, and put their manual dexterity to the test… just like professional archaeologists!
