Have Pointe-à-Callière and its guides join you remotely in the classroom! With our virtual guided tours for schools, your class can explore remarkable remains and artifacts and get to know the world of museums and archaeology as though your students were at the Museum itself!

Discover the world of museums and especially that of Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal Archaeology and History Complex. Your students will explore Pointe-à-Callière and its many pavilions and archaeological sites to understand the role of museums and archaeology in a dynamic and immersive way. By visiting the ruins and observing artifacts, your students will learn about what archaeologists do and how their research and discoveries are intimately linked to the Museum’s exhibitions.

Through a virtual tour designed for school groups and led by one of our qualified guides, this hybrid educational activity will first take you on a remote discovery of Pointe-à-Callière and then to four of its seven archaeological sites.

After the virtual tour, our guide will stay online for an interactive activity to help you and your class dive further into the content of the virtual tour. Your group will observe new artifacts discovered by our archaeologists and ask our guide any questions during the activity, which is based on dialogue, observation and discovery.
