The Centre d'histoire de Montréal is offering fun and historical activities for March Break. What better excuse for a family outing in Old Montreal?
Fire! A Tour about Fires and Firefighters 

Children in day camps are invited to discover a special slice of Montreal’s history: Fire – it’s good and bad sides – and the means used throughout history to fight it. They will learn how people sounded the alarm before 9-1-1 and what daily life was like for firefighters fifty years ago. They’ll also hear stories about fires that transformed the city, and more! 

Wednesday, March, 2, 14:15 p.m. (1 hour)
Reservations: 514 872-3207

Family (2 adults and up to 3 children) : 15$ 

My Explorer's Notebook

During your visit to the CHM, we invite you to meet children who lived in different eras of Montréal’s history through modules designed for children and illustrated by comic strip author Jean-Paul Eid. This Notebook for children (ages 6 to 12) includes information, games, and suggested Web sites, books and museums where they can learn more.

Winter Workshop

Guides will be at the museum's entrance, presenting various winter objects that have marked Montreal's history, like snowshoes, ice hooks, etc.
