School Programs

Battle of the Restigouche National Historic Site

Self visit (free)

  • Access is then free for the group and the attendant.
  • Allow about 45 min. for the visit.
  • In addition to the free visit to the Museum, the activities on the following pages are available.
  • Guided tour with an interpreter

    Parks Canada's special programming tariff applies; this is the basic rate of a visit with an animator, outside the operating season.  In addition to meeting a costumed character, the guide will cover these different topics:

    - Detailed context;

    - Important figures and unusual historical facts;

    - Trade and living conditions aboard an 18th century warship;

    - Architecture and navigation tools;

    - Period weapons and full cannon loading demonstration;

    - Even more!

  • Between 10 to 20 people: allow about 1h for the visit.
  • Group of 20 people or more – we split the group in two : allow about 2h for the entire visit. While the first group will be accompanied by a guide, the second group is invited to do the activities proposed on the next page.

    Additional Information:

  • Since last year, we have a new photographic exhibition, « Dive into your History »which covers the 50 years of underwater archaeology of Parks Canada, as well as a short video that shows the artefact monitoring dive carried out on the wreck of the Machault, in the Restigouche River.
  • We recommend visiting one group at a time (about 25 students). A group can start the tour while a second group takes advantage of the exhibition Dive into your History. Depending on the interest of the participants, the visit may take from 45 min to 1h30.
  • Onsite, we have a booklet of Xplorers activities that students (6-12 years old) can do during their visit, we also have a beautiful outdoor terrace overlooking the Restigouche River, as well as an accessible large grassy land with 3 Picnic tables.
