Found this little place quite by chance when looking for a viewpoint along the canal. Very reasonable entry fee (under $4 pp, or $10 for the whole family). While it is only one large room in a stone building, there is lots to see. Learn about furs, or trade routes, or local industry, or Indian/European relations by reading the signs,... More

This little museum is a gem, and is in a very scenic location on the old Lachine Canal. Parking is easy. The staff were very helpful in answering questions. The fur trade was a key to opening up Canada. The natives did most of the trapping, and the voyageurs transported the trading goods and furs by canoe. The Hudson Bay... More

Travel: take the green line to Angrignon stop. Then take bus 195 to 12th Avenue/Rue Saint Louis, which will take you about 3 minutes walking to the museum. It takes about 45 minutes on the bus depending on how many stops the driver makes. The bus driver may not know this place, mine didn't, just let them know the 12th... More

Our whole family enjoyed this museum. The guides were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The boys (8 &10) enjoyed completing the Canada Explorers booklet which even included a geocaching activity at the end. My husband and I enjoyed using the free I-Pad mini guided tour. We spent about an hour at the museum and felt the price was very reasonable- less than... More

Stopped here on our way into the city and it made early history make a lot more sense. Highly recommend as a starting place. Montreal so influenced by trading and the canal and this museum, while geared towards children, is a solid introduction. Lots of items to interact with and feel/touch. Most impressed by the enthusiasm of the park guides... More

Ok, you are traveling with small children, want something educational that isn't boring and fits the attention span of the family. Take them to the fur museum. They can touch the furs, see interactive exhibits, talk to an interpreter, go on a scavenger hunt with a book to fill in. All in less than an hour. Admission for family very... More

The Lachine museum is a rare find in a beautiful area of Lachine. Not only is the museum well laid out and great for kids and adults, but there is also a beautiful walking as well as biking path through Lachine. This is right on the Lake and is so picturesque! To the west it will bring you to Dorval... More

We visited the Fur Trade Museum on the last day it was open for the season (Sept. 2) and spent about an hour and a half there. The displays are very well done and I think this would be a very good hands on attraction for children. Something new this year is the complementary use of an interpretive story on... More

This museum is an awesome jam packed gem that presents information for both adults and children in an entertaining way. This is a very hands on museum where you can learn much about the fur trade that Canada was founded on. They also have a tablet guide that works very well. The interpreters are very friendly and happily provided more... More
