Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum is proud to offer this special program “Dolorès, Métis Grandmother”. This program complements your guided tour of the museum and takes you on an adventure into the world of storytelling, legends, learning and sharing through generations. Your guide is none other than our dearest Métis Grandmother, Dolorès Gosselin.

Come in and make yourself comfortable as you settle into Winnipeg’s oldest building. Take the time to listen. Grandmother’s drums will guide you through her many stories, and may even help you to share your own! This program is appropriate for all ages: from teenagers to adults; from little ones to seniors. “Dolorès, Métis Grandmother” is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays in November. It will also be available in an on-going manner for special group requests. Please call Le Musée ahead of time to make arrangements.
