Learn and have fun at Musée du Fjord

Musée du Fjord offers a complete educational program to its visiting school groups. Preschool, elementary, as well as high school students are exposed to our rich environmental, scientific, and historical heritage. Our program encourages them to better understand and preserve this heritage. With us, teachers will benefit from a first-rate pedagogical resource. The social studies, sciences, and technology fields of learning are addressed in our many exhibitions and educational excursions.

Group packages

The Museum offers package deals to turn your school tour into an even more enriching experience. Because we are located near various sites, which offer an array of activities, youth groups are only a few steps away from animated tours. With our guides, they will cross the street to visit the Verrerie d’art Touverre glassworks or Pyramide des Ha! Ha! (open from May to October).

Virtual resources

Before visiting the Musée du Fjord, discover the virtual resources that have been developed for teachers. Made available online by the Virtual Museum of Canada, the Online Learning Centre is offered to teachers and students, who can access collections from various Canadian museums. These digital learning resources provide access to a wide array of multimedia contents. The lesson plan Save our Monsters!, developed by Musée du Fjord, is part of a pedagogical approach aimed at students ages 9 to 15. In this lesson, teachers will find links to the learning collection and are encouraged to visit our Website: www.monstresmarins.ca. This Website can provide inspiration for teachers who wish to develop in-class discovery and research activities.

Legends of the Depths

Also, explore our new 3D game Legend of the Depth, developed in collaboration with the Virtual Museum of Canada. Musée du Fjord offers this experience in three dimensions, developed for children and teens ages 9 to 15. This game immerses players into oceanic depths, where they learn about the fascinating world of Canada’s oceans, through legends and scientific facts.

This immersion is continued in an encyclopedic version of the game, which offers a playful yet thoroughly documented glimpse at mythical marine creatures. Developed with leading-edge technologies, this virtual experience focuses on the discovery and exploration of tangible facts, which prove the existence of sea monsters.
