Fantastic location, good museum
Nov. 2019
The position of this building looking up at the Jacques Cartier Bridge makes for an impressive introduction to your visit. The museum itself over two floors explores in some detail the military history of Montreal - a lot of information to take in. Worth a visit (allow 1-2 hours if reading everything) and good value.

Age Discrimination
Oct. 2019
If you're 31 years and older stay away from this museum, because they really discriminate against you for being old by making you pay more due to your age. Young adults aged between 18-30 are the ones you have most of the money. They do this because they believe they are more important than you, and they believe millennials aged 18-30 are the most important patrons. Spend your money somewhere where they don't discriminate. Advice to the people who run the museum: These millenials are exploiting the discount because I had no room to talk and a bunch of them were taking away room for me to walk. Make millennials pay the same rate as the middle aged, people ages 18-30 are grown adults not children. Think more about increasing funding and satisfying older patrons, even if it means scaring away some if the spoiled entitled millennials.

Hello Lila, The Stewart Museum offers different range of prices: adults, seniors, students, families and children. The Admission fee for students (13-30 year old) is $12 only if they study full-time and present a student ID. The Museum offers also different discounts to their visitors, regardless of their age categories. For example, upon presentation of your STM OPUS card, you get $2 off. It is important to mention that the Stewart Museum do not discriminate people. This goes against the values of the institution. If you have questions or need more information about our Admission fees, please contact us at info.stewart@mccord-stewart.ca You can also visit our Admission fees page on our Website: https://www.musee-stewart.org/en/admission-fees/ We hope that this clarifies the situation. Have a nice day, The Stewart Museum Team

Interesting and quaint!

A surprisingly good museum stashed away on the island. We really enjoyed the displays as well as the interesting layout and history of the facility. It was also really nice that it wasn’t overrun with tourists like so many other museums tend to be.

A lot of history in a small museum
Jul. 2019 • Couples
My wife and I were advised by my daughter to look at this Museum. It is the other side of the Olympic Stadiums and Botanical Gardens in Montreal.

We were greeted by a very helpful young lady and directed as to the best way to approach the Museum. It is filled with artifacts and history. It is laid out in three stories, you take the lift or stairs and start at the top and work your way down to the reception area. The early history is fascinating, First Nations to the Vikings, then the French and the British of course.

Before we went into the Museum my wife and I had a picnic. My reading glasses fell out of my pocket I figured later on. We were back at the Train station when we discovered I had lost them. So we went into the tourist information office and the kind staff telephoned the museum on the off chance they found them. They did and kept them for me. I went over and collected them. I told the staff how much I appreciated their help.
Another member of staff pointed out a musket with a map of the route taken by the owner a British officer inscribed on the butt of his gun. So map needed and I never noticed it first time around.
Because of various events on in this area there is quite a lot of construction and some paths are comprised. You cannot depend on a map or Google earth to alert you. Usually a helpful construction crew member can assist as in our case.
A museum well worth a visit.

Great Museum
Jun. 2019 • Couples
I visited here with my husband. The visit did not start well, which I guess cannot be blamed on the museum, is that we arrived by Metro, however the signs around the island are not the best. We got lost twice, and probably walked 1500m, when we should have walked 700 or 800m

Once we arrived at the museum, the trip went up considerably in my opinion. The staff were very courteous and helpful,the museum is set out really well, with some very good and interesting exhibits. It is extremely tidy and clean.

A surprisingly interesting museum !
Apr. 2019 • Family
A lot of period artefacts, well laid-out, descriptions well done in both English and French.
The timelines on the walls help to keep it all clear.
Greatly enjoyed our visit with three 8-year olds.

Great museum
Mar. 2019 • Friends
This is a great museum especially if you are interested in the history of Ile St. Hélène (it is an island where the museum is located) and Montreal. You are led through 2 floors allowing the visitor to glimpse through a timeline of history. The museum holds many interesting artifacts, including ones you do not see elsewhere in museums across Canada, and a collection of impressive documents. The use of multimedia, although limited, serves to bring the history alive.
We were very fortunate to catch the "Paris on Display" exhibit, which is about to end. The interesting artifacts on display are those that merchants in the mid 18th century held in their shops in 3 of Paris's commercial districts. Some artifacts include exquisite items that reveal artistry and elegance. An exhibit of artifacts displayed Mme Pompadour's contributions to the decorative arts of the period and it was lovely.
I would visit this museum again.
I noted a wheelchair is available for visitors.

My only complaint was not with the museum but the City of Montreal. You can easily get to the island by Metro (subway-debark at Jean-Drapeau), but signs to get to the museum from the subway station are far and few between. Also, as the remnants of a hard winter are still with us, it was difficult walking to the museum once we found our way (especially at the museum's entrance) due to the ice and water pools. Very treacherous, indeed, for pedestrians.

Good little museum
Jan. 2019 • Friends
We were able to go as part of our Fete des Neiges ticket, and this was a nice little addition. They have some cool effects to the exhibits, and we liked the VR thing at the end of the Paris exhibit. It also let us have a chance to get warm for a few minutes.

Very educational and enjoyable. Loved the new escape room!
Oct. 2018 • Family
We were drawn to this museum for the military history aspect and there is much more to it as well. The exhibits are top notch - very impressive and worth the trip. We LOVED the newly added escape room. We have done several around the US and this is the first time we have experienced one that included actors. It was fantastic - and continued to add to the educational value of the whole visit. Thank you!

Used our MTL Passeport to navigate our way to this museum but as it was a Monday it was closed. Signage on the road leading to this museum giving times of openng would have saved us the disappointment of walking all the way into the grounds to discover it wasn’t open. Also updating information on the attraction website would have been helpful as we assumed it was open as there was no information to the contrary.
