Pirates or privateers? at Pointe-à-Callière

Pirates or privateers.jpgThe Pointe-à-Callière museum in Montreal has just opened a new family exhibit called "Pirates or Privateers?".

It gives kids the chance to climb aboard a privateer boat and find out what it takes to be a real pirate.

But it's also based on history - the real sailing careers of privateers in the St Lawrence River in the 17th century.

Philippe Boulanger works at the museum. He's a historian with a weakness for pirates.

He tells Sonali Karnick what's in store for families who want to go aboard during the holidays.
