  • This is a great museum! Lots of interactive exhibits to show Montreal's past. It is engaging and fun. There is a pirate section for kids which I found amazing! I thought it might be a bit boring but it was not! Really worth visiting. There is a nice gift shop in one of their buildings.
  • Outstanding museum for the history buffs! Great job Montreal. Way to own and love your city!! I wish my city had this type of museum to highlight its beauty. I couldn’t get enough. Do NOT miss the video! Starts every half hour. Then find yourself following the signs through the multitude of exhibits. I was mesmerized. Literally read every piece of information, well almost. From the way the exhibits were presented, to the cool walkways and the old sewer, this place was the highlight of my trip to Montreal. Will come back if I’m ever back.
