Two audioguide interpretation tours launched
MONTREAL, Sept. 12, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Marguerite Bourgeoys Museum and the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel, two key parts of Montréal's heritage, are proud to announce the launch of two audioguide interpretation tours. The tours, in English and French, introduce visitors to the city's oldest chapel (1771) and the Marguerite Bourgeoys Museum.
Art • history • heritage
Key figures in the history of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, known as the sailors' church, explain its fascinating past. The audioguide tour also gives visitors a better appreciation of the decoration and architecture of this treasure dating back to the 17th century, and the works of art it contains. They can even listen to the lovely tones of its 1910 Casavant organ.
Touring the Museum with this multimedia guide is the perfect way to learn about the life and exceptional destiny of Marguerite Bourgeoys. The Bonsecours site and its surroundings are also highlighted, through an original narrative enlivened with exclusive images, stories and first-hand accounts.
