MONTREAL, Feb. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - For the school break week from March 4
to 9, Pointe-à-Callière is inviting parents and children of ages 4 to 12 to
take part in dress-up workshops, play guessing games, makes discoveries, and
enjoy creative fun - all on the theme of Montréal in days gone by.
The whole family will also have a chance to participate in a simulated
archaeological dig led by an interpreter-guide. It's a perfect opportunity for
youngsters on spring break to have fun as they learn plenty of interesting
things about the city's archaeology and history.
Family Break activities will be held in the permanent exhibition Where
Montréal Was Born, an authentic archaeological site, and at the Mariners
House. However, visitors must go to the Museum's reception desk in order to
book a time slot for the activities.
Young and old alike will also be able to take advantage of their
excursion to the Museum to see the temporary exhibition 1837 1838
Rebellions, Patriotes vs Loyalists, which examines these events during which
Patriotes and Loyalists clashed, leading to dramatic results.
A lunch space is available for families to use from noon to 1 p.m.
Visitors should plan on bringing cold lunches, as there is no microwave
Family Break activities are included in the price of admission to the
Museum and are offered in English and French.
