Walking tours help kids discover historic Montreal
Montreal is celebrating its 375th birthday this year, and what better way to learn more about your city’s history than by taking a walking tour?
Throughout the month of June, children ages 6 to 10 (accompanied by an adult) can explore the streets of Pointe St. Charles, a historically industrial and working class neighbourhood bordered by the Lachine Canal. Organized by Heritage Montreal, a non-profit organization dedicated to conserving the city’s history, animators will point out interesting facts about architectural landmarks, offer insight into what daily life was like, and lead interactive educational games.
The session on June 3 will be offered in French while the June 11 and 18 sessions will be bilingual. The tours begin at the corner of Charlevoix and St. Patrick Sts. at 10 a.m. The workshops cost $10 for adults and $5 for children.
