You can cozy up to woolly alpacas in Old Montreal over March break

Feb 14 2020, 11:47 am

Going on an Old Montreal adventure? Alpaca lunch.

March break is typically used for extravagant trips to warm places but boasting about hanging out with alpacas should be up there too.

For the third year in a row, the Pointe-à-Callière museum in Old Montreal will be hosting a range of indoor and outdoor activities during the first week of March including creative workshops, history, musical performances, and the chance to meet and pet alpacas.

The alpacas are part of the museum’s “The Incas, Treasures of Peru” exhibition, which showcases the beauty, history, and stories of the Inca civilization which rose from the Peruvian highlands in the early 13th century.

“You can fall for the woolly charms of alpacas, the magnificent animals that symbolize Inca culture” reads the event’s website. “Staff from La vie en Alpaga farm will be outside the museum with at least three alpacas every day to tell you all about alpaca wool, from shearing to spinning.”
