Enjoyed very much, the War Flowers exhibit is very moving. This is a temporary exhibit. I would like to visit when the gardens are in bloom. The price is right and great location.

Chateau Ramezay was our first introduction to Old Montreal, and that turned out to be a perfect place to begin our wanderings! Most of the main level housed an amazingly concise history of Montreal, complete with original portraits of Fr Jacques Marquette and several city...More

We spent a good hour touring the three levels of this wonderful museum. Plenty of the story of Montreal here, from Indian times on. You can participate in a bread making activity, which smells great!
