About

Explore the Bourlamaque Mining Village where its pretty log homes are still inhabited. Using an audio-guide, wander through the streets of this village, where the past is still present, and discover its history. Make a stop at the historic house, where a new interactive exhibition set in a 1940's residential décor invites you to step into the shoes of any of the characters and make choices resulting in diverse consequences. Discover the family life of yesteryear through a variety of themes: social dilemmas faced by the inhabitants of the mining village; the challenge of settling in an emerging resource-rich landlocked region; women and their roles as managers of the home environment; the struggle for power between the union movement, employers and the political and religious circles; intercultural cohabitation; living on the borders of legality and its temptations.
