Through Batoche's on-site interpretation, its cultural assets and its multimedia production, students (school groups) are given the opportunity to learn by experiencing actual places where Canadian history was made. Join the North West Field Force for a day, help with gardening and laundry or "build" a Red River frame structure.

The public has the opportunity to converse with knowledgeable interpreters while exploring the site's architectural and archaeological resources. Batoche is a place where one can become familiar with Canadian history and or the Métis culture and heritage.
