Escape Game

October 19, 2019

Prisoners of Camp S/43

Escape game at the Fort of St.Helen’s Island

Try to escape from internment Camp S/43 on St. Helen’s Island! Relive a little-known episode of Montreal’s history during the Second World War. From 1940 to 1943, the Fort of St. Helen’s Island held 400 Italian merchant seamen and civilians as prisoners of war.

The Stewart Museum invites you to participate with family and friends in a new escape game. You’ll suddenly find yourself locked in one of the rooms in Camp S/43! To escape, you’ll have to look for clues, bribe the camp guards, and find keys and a map for the tunnel. May the best team win!


Every other Saturday
Last escape game: October 19, 2019
