Maison St-Gabriel, historic site and museum
A guide in period costume describes the daily life of the people who lived in the farmhouse that welcomed the King's Wards. This visit offers you the opportunity to learn about the story of the pioneers of Ville-Marie and the rural heritage from the 17th to the 20th century. Discover handcrafted furniture and rare objects from that period. The adventure of the King's Wards will have never seemed so authentic!
OUR WINTER PROGRAMME
(for more information, visit the Maison Saint-Gabriel website)
Children aged 6 to 12
Come and discover the joys of winter in the days of New France.
Take advantage of the school break to come and have fun at Maison Saint-Gabriel.
As you explore the museum, your guide in period costume will suggest games and challenges for your children. Our young visitors are always interested in intriguing facts and objects. How do you heat your home without electricity? What do you eat when nothing grows? How do you get around without a car? A visit that answers all their questions.
Then, as part of the outdoor game In the Footsteps of Noah the Squirrel, your children go in search of clues to find out what the squirrels living on the historic site eat. Children who find the mystery word are entitled to a small reward!
