Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Founded in 1864 under the auspices of the American Civil War, the Windsor Powder Mill produced black powder, one of the essential components for explosives. Until 1922, the town of Windsor in Quebec made its living from this very dangerous industry. You can now learn its explosive secrets, the how and the why of this manufacturing through a permanent interactive exhibition and theatrical guided tour through the 56 buildings that made up the factory. Nature lovers will appreciate the park’s ecological discoveries. Personalized service, a souvenir shop and a picnic area are among the services offered.
