The Ghost of Pointe-à-Callière Halloween virtual online escape game

Pointe-à-Callière is launching a virtual escape game for Halloween

The online multiplayer game challenges teams to discover the identity of the ghost haunting the Old Montreal museum.

An online multiplayer game called The Ghost of Pointe-à-Callière is one of three Halloween activities happening courtesy of the Montreal archaeology and history museum this week. The game takes players on a virtual tour of the Old Montreal museum in search of a ghost that’s said to haunt its cavernous halls.

“While some think the ghost is that of an old sailor abandoned by his crew, others believe the lonely soul is none other than that of Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville, Canada’s most renowned privateer!”

Players then have to discover the identity of the ghost by locating clues in the details of museum artefacts and other objects within Pointe-à-Callière.
