Museum is really nice, with a big collection to see. They have a interesting short Virtual Reality experience for the City of Light (PARIS ON DISPLAY) exhibition. The system of looking for the objects descriptions is a little odd; you have to keep a kind...More

This place is a bit out of the way to reach. I had expected a dusty collection of artifacts. Instead, I had a fabulous visit going through the Montreal Expo 67 exhibition. This is a temporary exhibition and has since closed. I will have to...More

The Expo 67 exhibition really gave you the sense of what it was like to be there. The virtual reality segment really blew me away. The rest of the museum gives a great overview of colonial Montreal and Quebec. It's a hidden little gem. It...More

Everything you wanted to know about old Quebec and especially Montreal. From pre-colonial times to the 20th century, you can see it all here. A great mix of artifacts, modern displays (I love the diorama!) and just historic architecture.

It was a 15 minute walk from the Dome to the Museum. It was a little hard to find. The museum currently contains 2 exhibits: one on the history of the fort and one on Expo 67. We had an hour and toured the Expo...More

This museum primarily covers the history of Quebec and Montreal with reading panels and artifacts. It is housed in an old fort on Parc Jean Drapeau. Currently, there is an additional exhibit commemorating 50 years of Expo 67 which is worthwhile to view.

This museum had very good historical information about the province of Quebec and Montreal. Signage is in both english and french; and the artifacts are well presented and described. The museum is in a 19th C fort, so you can see that as well. The...More

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The
mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of
the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space
still retains its inherited carnival character. A
wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins
des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked
wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks,

Yes, the metro lets off on the island. It's about a 15-minute walk through a lovely park to reach the museum.
