Photo cred - Canada In Pictures

Have you ever thought about going back in time? What if we could experience life as it was centuries ago?

Apparently, we can. The Pointe-à-Callière's 18th Century Public Market will take us directly to 1750, at the time of Montréal's very first public marketplace.

We will have the opportunity to participate in historical activities while living in a New France atmosphere and tasting delicious products and goods related to that era. Children will also enjoy the Public Market, as they will have the chance to dress up, play soldier, and discover old-school French games.

Come have fun and experience Montreal as it was in the 18th Century. Museum admission rates will be 20% off because of the event. 

When?From August 23rd to August 24th.

Where? in the Old Port.

Visit the museum website for more information.
