As part of its annual fundraising campaign, the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation aims to raise funds for the renewal of the popular permanent exhibition Come Aboard! Pirates or privateers?

A new, unique, and immersive experience for adventurers young and old!

Come Aboard! Pirates or Privateers? gives young visitors and families a golden opportunity to learn how they measure up to the rugged mariners who sailed the St. Lawrence River in the days of New France. Presented in an immersive environment within the Old Custom House – J. Armand Bombardier Foundation Pavilion, this discovery-exhibition unfolds against a backdrop evoking a privateer ship—The Iberville—on which young people, play a role in a tale of adventure, test their physical and intellectual skills.

Campaign goal: $150,000
