The Museum is coming to you
During this time, it is possible to find entertainment from home in a few clicks.
The possibilities are endless, in fact! It’s encouraging to see how artists, creators and cultural institutions are being inspired by the many options that are available.
Thank you for the regular visits to our social networks. We invite you to share our virtual program and activities with your friends.
School at home
As a tribute to Montréal’s first school teacher, we have posted a number of publications catered to families and children on the Museum’s Facebook page. You’ll find fun activities and exercises that were prepared by teachers and other educators.
Museum at home
The new permanent exhibit will be inaugurated as soon as possible (we’re hoping for this summer). In the meantime we have patrimonial treasures and historical accounts, that are part of our special Facebook publication: Testez vos connaissances quiz on Wednesdays; Tranches de vie memories on Fridays; and Objets de collection items on Sundays.
Musician at home
We’re preparing a special musical treat for you, featuring Benoît Marineau, the Chapel’s organist. He will be webcasting three mini concerts from his home. Look for the videos and details on the Museum’s Instagram page, Facebook page and right below
You can watch and listen on Mondays from April 20th
Storytelling at home
The Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel Pastoral Department will be presenting excerpts from St-Exupéry’s Petit Prince online. It is read by Benjamin Astresses and accompanied by organist Benoît Marineau. The well loved Little Prince lived on a planet hardly bigger than he was. His story encourages us to appreciate every moment, to look for true meaning in things and to nourish our creativity, all of life lessons especially in our current situation.
In eight episodes, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays starting April 21.
Books my mother read
We are preparing an inter-generational activity on our social networks, where you can suggest the titles of books your mother read to you, or classical children favourites that are read by parents and grandparents. For more info, see the Facebook event.
