Come aboard Exporail 360°

Exporail offers primary school students a new way to discover the fascinating world of trains. Accompanied by a museum guide, take a virtual tour of the Grand Gallery from your classroom.

The visits are intended for the different cycles of primary school. The 50-minute tours explore the interiors of selected vehicles and students learn about the history, technology and people associated with railways in Canada. Our guide will interact with the students and answer their questions during the activity.

Video conference presentations are available via Zoom or Microsoft Teams platforms. Exporail is listed in the Répertoire culture-éducation and the cost of the visits for Quebec schools can be covered by the Ministry of Education’s Culture in the Schools program. The cost for each virtual visit is $150 per class.

This project is made possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Quebec within the framework of the digital development agreement for tourism businesses in the Tourisme Montérégie region, as well as the help of a generous donor.
