» Château Ramezay - Musée et site historique de Montréal

To underline the importance of bread in New France and see how it was made, young and old are invited to try their hand at making, baking and tasting some colonial-style, sweet bread.

Hang your Christmas stocking!

» Château Ramezay - Musée et site historique de Montréal

Only the Château Ramezay offers this activity! Children can hang a Christmas stocking by the fireplace and come back in the New Year to see what Santa has left them! (But they’d better be good!)

Stockings are on sale for $10 + tax. They can be picked up from the January 2.
