Adults

Montcalm presents our activities to you.

For your special activities, conferences, meetings, symposiums and family gatherings, our explosive cocktail blending humour, history and interactivity will conquer the minds of all your guests.

Period activities are our way of inviting you to meet the characters that embody the history of the Plains of Abraham, and to experience their everyday life. Between theatre and re-enactment, period presentations are meant as a dynamic approach to help us discover our heritage!

Health standards in effect at the time of the activity will be respected. Wearing a mask remains mandatory for visitors of museum institutions.

BATTLES | 1759-1760 EXHIBITION

Accompanied by a member of the Canadian militia, learn about the history of the Siege of Québec City and of the battles of the Plains of Abraham. In an evocative, interactive setting, find out about the crimes, punishments and laws in force. Take part in an incredible immersive screening featuring original, often moving, accounts of those who lived through the battles of the Plains of Abraham. Then, join in and explore military life from every angle. Finally, admire treasures from the magnificent collection of artefacts in the Identities exhibition.

"It's a very tangible experience that makes the history come to life."

 

GUIDED TOUR OF THE PARK

"What an exceptional guide in every way: giving the content, complementary information that was relevant and abundant, perfect French and English, appropriate and engaged acting. He’s worth one million dollars! Our two groups of Canadian Studies Master Degree and New France literature were under his spell!" – Anne T., Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario.

 

WOLFE AND MONTCALM

Learn all about the historic battles and take a ringside seat to watch a friendly clash between generals Wolfe and Montcalm. To decide who will be the winner between these two generals, a contest is organized in which you will take part. A musket loading competition, military and surgery quizzes will seal this thorny situation permanently

"The activity was interactive and incredible. Guides were funny, very lively and good actors. Bravo and thank you! What a good activity! The use of the interactive whiteboard was excellent and gave a visual support that makes it easier for French immersion groups. The equipment = excellent!" — François B. and Maxime A., Université Sainte-Anne, Pointe-de-l'Église, Nova Scotia.
