Add an explosive element to your visit—train to be a Cannoneer and light the fuse of a cannon identical to those that defended 18th century Louisbourg. An exclusive training of French colonial artillery techniques.
You must be at least 16 years old; if under 18 you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You must wear closed-toe shoes and long pants.
