Small, comprehensive and well laid out. Info given by films, models, wall panels and recordings, in a well integrated way. Nice virtual reality ‘tour’ in their Expo 67 section on the upper floor. Well worth visiting.
Interesting place for a visit. Not a big one. It is an old fire station. It was built on the way of the small river which afterwards had been hidden in a pipe.
You can take guided tour here. Museum tells about two important stories...More
I may have been expecting too much but I can't recommend visiting this Centre. It has very little more than a very basic history of the city. The entry fee is low, but even so I don't rate it as worth a visit.
The Centre D'Histoire de Montreal is a great place to go before you see the other sights. It gives you a detailed and thorough history of the city, including First Nations, the different settlers in Montreal, the industrial age, etc. The exhibits are detailed enough...More
Full of history on Montreal. We enjoyed visiting this museum (it also gave us respite from the hot sunshine!). We particularly enjoyed the big map at the entrance and trying to locate all the places on it and put them in the right place. The...More
I think because of the weather we enjoyed sitting outside this converted fire station more than the inside - that said it was VERY pleasant outside.

This was part of our Montreal passeport ticket so we did not pay - adult tickets were $7.50. We would have paid this just for the ground floor information.
The history of Montreal documented in an informative and interactive way which was good. Levels 2...More
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
