Well it was raining and windy and an indoor museum seemed appropriate for the weather. But it’s not a museum it does walking tours through the Jewish district. Has some maps and small exhibit but not your typical museum.

She highlighted the social developments (immigrants...More

This was the second walking tour we did in Montreal and it was great! So different from the first one. I would definitely take other tours with the Museum of Jewish Montreal on a next visit to the city. Tricia was knowledgeable and pleasant.

If you want to know about the rich history of Montreal's Jewish Community, this is the place to go. From their walking tours to their exhibitions and the gift shop, all is great. No to mention their cafe, Fletchers, which in a very short time...More
