Lots of space to run around for young children. The museum tells the story of early settlers on the island of Montreal. The personnel are great with the children and are able to keep their interest. Even adults can learn a thing or two.

Knowledgeable guides to inform visitors of the beginning history of Canada and how it relates to the fur trade. Fascinating and a great intro upon entering the country. Consider yourself lucky if you happen to be assigned to Chantaille - personality plus and specific information....More

Very friendly staff gave us a partial quick tour and we finished it up with a self guided tour. The museum is quite small but informative. It is a Canada state park so the price is quite reasonable also.

If you are in the Lasalle Lachine area of Montreal (southwest) then this would be a great place to stop and learn all about the area and the fur trade.

Wonderful location, especially for cyclists touring the Lachine Canal. Good overview of the fur trade, which was the earliest kind of commerce for European settlers in the New World.

This was a fun little place! When we visited Lachine the person at the information desk recommended this museum. There was a very low entry fee and the museum was charming. It was housed in an old stone storehouse that was originally used in the...More

Great little museum! We spent 90 minutes there and loved it. We had visited Fort William in Thunder Bay, Ontario a few months ago and this was the perfect companion museum to really better understand the fur trade history. We rented bicycles at Ca Roule...More
