We spent about 1.5 hours touring this museum. Half of it is about the history of Montreal and the other about life as a colonialist. Very informative and interesting even for teenagers.

The museum is a pleasant place, the audio displays are informative and one of the rooms, the wood panelled music room, was beautiful, but there was little attempt to capture the sense of a home. Most of the exhibits are in glass cases with many...More
