Guided tours for school groups

Maison Alphonse-Desjardins offers free learning activities designed especially for elementary school children. The activities help them discover the life and work of Alphonse and Dorimène Desjardins while awakening them to cooperative values. The historical setting has been painstakingly recreated, allowing young people to relive the time in which these cooperators lived and the origins of their great project.
