Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by our friendly guides in period costumes. During this visit, your students will learn about certain important events in the history of New France.


Our guides explain to the students how the settlers adapted to their new country and its climate. Food, hygiene, travel and exchanges with Aboriginals are some of the topics covered.

“As they tour the different rooms in the house, students learn about daily life in New France.”


Based on your students’ knowledge, we can customize your visit by focussing on particular subjects.

The timeline must simply respect the history of Quebec between the 17th and 20th century. If you wish to take advantage of this option, please be sure to let us know when making your reservations.

The following three themes can be used during your guided tour: architecture, history of furniture and cabinet making.

Do you have another theme in mind?

Please let us know your subject. It would be our pleasure to explore the possibilities of personalizing your visit with you.
