Temporarily unavailable

An all-new Halloween activity filled with fantastic tales and legends! On Halloween night in 1856, a lamplighter works up the courage to venture out to the haunted McTavish mausoleum, on Mount Royal. McTavish’s ghost is rumoured to have been seen in Pointe-à-Callière’s pumping station!

Who was Simon McTavish? Did he really make a deal with the devil in order to build his great mansion on Mount Royal? Does his spirit really roam through the sewer system beneath our feet?

Will you be brave enough to discover McTavish's legend? We are waiting for you!
