Iconic building with a lot of history. We stopped to check out the main hall for free on a very cold morning. 15 minutes was enough time to get warmed up and continue on our walking tour.

City Hall is a magnificent example of Second Empire architecture. It is a great building, sitting on Notre Dame East st., between Place Jacques Cartier and Champ de mars. It was completed in 1878, but had to be rebuilt after a massive fire in 1922....More

The City Hall building sits in the heart of old Montréal. The architecture is grand and you really don’t appreciate it until you walk it’s perimeter. We saw City Hall decked out in festive lights and then tried to explore it inside and out, but...More

I am surprised that the City Hall did not get a better rating because we found the history quite fascinating. It is the seat of local government in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Construction on the building began in 1872 and was completed in 1878. The original...More

A magnificent building with great history. City hall was rebuilt after a fire destroyed it in 1922 and it is a really awesome building. Ex French president Charles de Gaulle proclaimed his. Famous speech from its balcony, so much history.

Has a special place in Quebec's history. President De Gaule making his famous declaration from the premises. Nice architecture, inside and out. A few exhibits about the history and locale. Mostly in French. Worth 30 minutes of your time.
