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...More
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

Thank you for your comment! We are glad you enjoyed your visit !
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.
I'm glad this was included as one of the Montreal Passeport attractions because otherwise, I would have felt it was expensive for what you get. I had read so many reviews talking about how amazing this museum was and I think my expectations may have...More
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
Very nice museum! As we walked in we were welcomed into a period dance event and had a great time. Expo exhibit was also wonderful. I would have liked to see a bit more of how the building was used and what it was originally...More
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,
and exploration. Old exhibitions still straddle the newest entertainment complexes, including the high-flying roller coasters of La Ronde Amusement Park and the brightly-lit Casino de Montréal. From the springtime on, families crowd the sandy beaches with candy-striped umbrellas, and rowers take to the Olympic Basin, where the spherical American Pavilion and the high brick Tour de Lévis provide an atypical backdrop. A short metro trip carries visitors and locals to this vacationing spot, providing leisure and activity outside of the inner city.
