Add an explosive element to your visit – train to be a cannoneer and fire a cannon! Light the fuse and wait for the blast of a cannon identical to those that defended 18th-century Louisbourg. An exclusive, exciting 45 minutes of French colonial artillery techniques shared by fellow soldiers will officially make you a cannoneer in training.

You must be at least 16 years old; youth between the ages of 16-18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
You must wear closed-toe shoes and long pants.
