Travellers for a day: Pirate or Privateer? + FREE lunch room + Wonderful Water! + Multimedia show

Pirate or Privateer?

Who wouldn't want to take part in a tale of adventure, filled with suprises, aboard an 18th-century-style ship, imagining oneself in the heart of New France? Here's a golden opportunity for young people to learn about and measure up to the rough and ready sailors who scoured the St. Lawrence River alongside Montréal privateers Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville.

Free lunch room

A lunch room is available for groups.

Multimedia show

From seats overlooking impressive archaeological remains, the multimedia show Generations MTL invites kids to rediscover the history of Montréal through an incredible immersive set.

Wonderful water!

We’ve come a long way since people used to draw their drinking water straight from the St. Lawrence and dump their wastewater in the street! Water has a whole history of its own… Your campers will discover the ingenious ways Montrealers have managed this precious resource since the 17th century while doing fun experiments with water. How do you transform wastewater into drinking water or salt water into fresh water? With our interactive workshops, water will no longer be a mystery to budding scientists!
