  • Nice little Museum that exposes different parts (tables, furniture, reenactments...) covering the life of the inhabitants of Montreal, that since the origin of this town. The explanations in french or English are rather clear and accessible (a guided tour is also possible in each of the two languages). At the exit, a nice garden - where ambled - is not to be missed.

  • In Montreal there is not much to go to a tourist. Especially if it is European. I recommend going to visit this House a museum only if it's raining outside and you have no alternatives to pass an hour. It is not very interested. Practically the bubble of the Governor of Quebec at the time of the settlers. There is nothing within interesting.
