Playing Hooky: Children's Tour

A one-hour tour for young families, specially designed for children between the ages of 5 and 10. Visit the Fortress of Louisbourg and take a peek at the life of the children who lived here in the 18th century. Imagine not going to school but having to get up early to go to work. The life of the children of Louisbourg was very different from that of children today. A first-hand experience of life in the old, old days.
