Archaeology is cool!

Archaeology is cool!

Saturdays and Sundays,
from 10 am to noon, and from 1 pm to 3 pm

The Museum offers young people an archaeological activity that takes place in a veritable simulated dig site, located in an new space at the Museum: the Archaeo-Adventure Workshop.

Children take part in a search for archaeological objects. The little budding archaeologists even get to put on an archaeologist’s gloves to examine and handle real artefacts.

Once all of the objects have been unearthed, children can let their imaginations run wild by making a clay model of some Amerindian pottery. They can bring their work of art home as evidence of their exciting archaeological dig.
