Well preserved historical site in the Old Town area with audio descriptions. Can get guided tour if you wish but most people we noted just walked through ending up in the old English gardens.

The chateau is a small museum and a great piece of Montreal history. If you are from the USA, you will find some of our history there too.

Well done, educational, and enjoyable to tour this museum. Listen to the audio exhibits available in most all of the rooms. After you tour, enjoy the garden, then right across the street is fun, food and beverage in the "happening" part of Old Montreal.
