Day of Your Visit
The Museum has a safe, underground, dedicated Group Entrance for arrival of groups in motor coaches and buses. To keep our visitors safe, only one group at a time will be admitted into the Group Entrance.
We recommend that your group arrives a minimum of 20 minutes before the scheduled start of your reserved time or program. In the event of inclement weather or other unexpected delays, please call en route to advise our Call Centre at 819-776-7014 or 1-800-555-5621. If you arrive late, we cannot guarantee your reserved program or tour.
Once your group has arrived at the Group Entrance, please have your Group Leader check in at the desk. Museum staff will provide instructions to the Group Leader for group entry, safety measures in place, etc.
Storage lockers located in the Group Entrance area will be assigned to your group, free of charge.
Lockers will not be shared between groups and they will be cleaned every day.
The Museum is fully accessible. Should your group have any special needs, please advise our Call Centre in advance.
Free parking is available year-round at the Robert Guertin Arena, located at 125 Carillon Street in Gatineau, a few minutes from the Museum.
We encourage teachers planning a visit to the Museum with their groups to review our Teacher Overviews. The Teacher Overviews include pre- and post-visit activities, a program outline and detailed curriculum connections for each school program. Click here for Teacher Overviews.
