Fire and Ice - Centre d’histoire de Montréal
The Centre d’histoire de Montréal is offering three fun and historical activities for March Break. What better excuse for a family outing in Old Montreal?
1) 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!

For three days during March Break, our guides will be at our museum’s entrance, presenting various winter objects that have marked Montreal’s history, like snowshoes, ice hooks, etc
