History Museum
Originally built in 1705 as the residence of a former Montreal governor, Château Ramezay - Historic Site and Museum of Montreal now stands as a historic building and educational museum.

As the area's oldest private history museum, and a National Historic Site, it is no surprise the structure has filled with thousands of vintage items.

  • Built in 1705 as the residence of the Governor of Montreal, has currently been converted into a museum which shows you stays enabled appliances of the time, as well as any other subsequent appliance, as the first vehicle from Etobicoke, etc... In the lower part you can see the service stays, kitchens etc... A little expensive for what is in the Museum. It is interesting but not finished to finish I... I guess that for the Americans, it may be interesting, but for Europeans it may be scarce, being more accustomed to palaces or castles rather more impressive. Still recommended to learn the history of the city.

  • One of the most ancient House of Montreal made Museum. Nice place, if you visit it when they mounted a new exhibition can visit only half Museum. Very interesting for children as there are special activities for them, teach them how life was in that House in 1700.

  • One of the oldest residences in Mmontreal. Very historic and cultural.
  • There is quite a lot of information here to absorb and learn about early Montreal. There is also some sort of children's program, but since we don't have children yet, we did not ask about it.
  • Good place to learn about the history of the city and the region. Looks like a lot is still to under construction though...
  • The oldest house in Montreal amust with excellent audio from key members in the houses history make for a fascinating visit
  • Perfect place to begin learning the history of the New France. They have a lot of items from those times. There are also activities offered to immerse yourself even deeper into the history.
