This was one of the places which I was hoping to see. However arrived to find that it was closed with no explanation why. From speaking to some locals, find that it has been closed for a while, with no explanation why, or if it will be reopening.

Learned of this apparently awful man who united Canada. A interesting story and informative tour. Very sweet people work there and the displays are glorious.

Despite a broad interest in history, this American really didn't know much about how Canada came to be. This home of one of the nation's founders tells the story in easy detail while also exploring the lives and diaries of his two daughters and allowing a look through his 19th century home. It's free, too. Just on the eastern edge of the old city.

Major benefit - the visit might inspire you to learn more about the politics of 1850 to confederation; this man was influential and a bridge builder. The house itself is 'restored' but more along the lines of what might have been attempted in the 60's than what you could expect from the thoroughly curated historical site today. Still, the price is right (free, this 150th year), and it's worth a stop if not pressed for time - and you are in the old city anyway.

We had no expectation and was surprise to learn its existence. At one end of old Montreal, it easy accessible from the old port. Mr. Cartier took an important role in the history of Quebec and Canada. He played a politic role while being a lawyer. The house presents highlights of the time, the family, their activities and receptions. You can see the rooms, the dining room, the blue and red living room with some original furniture (to see – the silver platter). The guided visit was great. But you can also visit on your own. But I think the guide brought the visit to another level. Plus, free admission this year due to the 150th anniversary of Canada.
