Murals of Sherbrooke - Virtual Guide

Description


YOUR GUIDE TO SHERBROOKE'S BEAUTIFUL MURALS
Downtown Sherbrooke is home to a series of giant and colourful murals, all of them with a story to tell. Find them all, and find out more about each one, from the characters they depict, to the history of their creation.  You can go at your own pace, day or night, all the year! The virtual tour includes map, itinery, photos, written texts, audio files, rare archival film footage, and exclusive interviews.

A FUN EXPERIENCE
Are you observant? From clues, such as objects, elves and small animals listed on your device, you are invited to find their exact locations within each mural. Three categories of clues are available: easy, medium and hard. Tired of looking? Access the answers on your screen immediately!

STARTING POINT
The suggested starting point is on the corner of Wellington and Frontenac Streets.

OPTION
You can preload the tour onto the Application before starting; this way you won't have to be connected to the internet (3G or WiFi networks) as you go along!
