Grand opening of the new six-language multimedia circuit
MONTREAL, June 16 /CNW Telbec/ - Beginning on June 23, 2010, the Château Ramezay, a jewel of Québec's heritage, invites you to experience its brand new six-language multimedia circuit, which traces the evolution of the Château through the centuries.
The first building built for the governor of Montréal in 1705, the Château has been the privileged witness of Montréal's history; it lived through the changes of Old Montréal and played a role in significant events of our past. No wonder it was the first building to be declared a historical monument in 1929!
Let the important figures, who were involved in the Château's life through the centuries, tell you about its evolution. Claude de Ramezay, Gilles Hocquart, Benjamin Franklin and Lady Whitworth-Aylmer, among others, will tell all kinds of fascinating stories about this centuries-old building.
The Château Ramezay is organizing two days of festivities for Fête nationale and the grand opening of its new multimedia circuit. On June 23 and 24, receive two tickets for the price of one at the Museum's box office. The Museum will also exceptionally stay open until 9 p.m.
The Museum will be giving Montrealers a unique opportunity to discover - or rediscover - their heritage in jacket and tie after work, or in sandals on the Fête nationale holiday.
The multimedia circuit is offered in six languages (French, English, Spanish, German, Japanese and Mandarin) so visitors from Québec and elsewhere can learn about our history.
