Great place to visit, you can spend an hour or several, proceed through history at your own pace. I learned so much about Montreal in such a short time, I never knew about the quiet revolution of the 60's in Montreal. I highly recommend visitors stop here early in their visit, the museum gives a great overview of the city and is very reasonable.

This museum is in a beautiful old firehall in Old Town. We enjoyed learning a lot about Montreal's history as well as exploring an entire floor dedicated to Expo '67. I would have liked to have learned more from their exhibit on the top floor (immigration) but the entire presentation is in French and while my French isn't bad I wasn't able to follow along as well as I had hoped. Not great for visitors (like my husband) who don't have any French. Cheap entry fee (I think it was $7.50 for each of us) and will take about 1- 1.5 hours to complete.

A very compact museum split into three floors. The first gave a potted, if basic, history of Montreal. The second was a floor devoted to the Expo of 1967, something that I knew nothing about so found interesting. The top floor is dedicated to immigration to the city. It is however presented entirely in French which I struggled with a bit and so perhaps did not get the best from this aspect of the museum. Overall, probably worth 1-2 hours of your time for relatively cheap cost.

The museum is on the corner of Place d’Youville and Rue Saint-Pierre. The building is a beautiful former firehouse converted to a museum. The area is a place to walk and take in the architecture of the old buildings.
