The permanent exhibit on the bourgeoisie in New France can be explored on a guided tour. Discover what foods they ate, how they dressed and their various customs. The exhibition also invites you to discover the world of Marie-Josephte Chastelain and her husband Joseph-Claude Boucher de Niverville, a bourgeois couple who lived in the New France colony. See what life was really like back in the day!
Combine teamwork and family fun on a GPS Rally that starts at the manor. Offered every day of the museum’s summer season, this activity invites you to discover the historic district of downtown Trois-Rivières by locating the items that are hidden there. It's a great opportunity to engage your minds as well as stretch your legs!
An audio-guided walking tour, also with a starting point at the manor, invites you to explore the history and architecture of Trois-Rivières in a very original way. Equipped with a View Master toy, walkers will be able to access archival photos presenting buildings that have been transformed or that have completely disappeared. They will also get an up-close look at significant events in the city's history. A great way to see Trois-Rivières again or for the first time, this charming activity is also sure to be nostalgic for visitors who will remember this toy from their childhood!
