  • Quite a few explanations on Montreal of yesterday and today, and especially on the 1967 fair or 76 I have a memory lapse. Almost nothing exists today of this. The current Casino was the french Pavilion. Besides go to the casino I won 40 bucks at roulette. It's awesome all of these machines and this "money" that is left.

  • The staff where so helpful and polite, great insight into how Montreal came to be, and interesting look at how it became so diverse. Nice few different exhibitions on too.  more »
  • Nice little Museum that presents a permanent exhibition about the history of the city of Montreal. An overview of the quite informative, although a bit redundant if you are from Quebec. The temporary exhibitions on Expo 67 really won us over, full of images from the archives of testimony, period objects and quite interactive. We stayed several hours and enjoyed our visit, all for a really reasonable price.

  • it was partially closed. very small. not many exponats
  • Great lecture and exhibit. Thanks.
  • Good, detailed exhibits, free wifi and not too expensive admission. Plus, thankfully, air conditioned!
  • Even though it was cold it is a beautiful area to wander around
  • A must visit for anyone wishing to have an orientation on why Montreal is the way it is in terms of culture, architecture, language relationships etc. an exhibit on the history of corruption in Montreal is particularly tongue-in-cheek.
