Louisbourg is a great way to spend a day learning Early French Colonial history. A reconstructed settlement offers plenty to see and do. You and your family will be learning history by watching history unfold around you. Visit an old fisherman, see how residents of different classes lived, talk to a wealthy merchant and his wife, take a dance lesson, stop by an Inn for a meal and a drink, watch the garden be weeded,buy a loaf of bread, be taken prisoner, see the guards fire their muskets, learn how to make bobbin lace. This is a place to go if you love history.Participation is encouraged! Great fun for families with middle school age children. Be prepared for much colder, weather than the rest of Cape Breton Island. Bring a warm jacket and rain gear. This is a walking site! you need good shoes and a desire to do lots and lots of walking! Don't be surprised if you do not see it all in one day! We have gone three times over the past ten years and still have more to do!
