Pointe-à-Callière, cité d'archéologie et d'histoire de Montréal.

Birthplace of Montréal and a National Historic Site, it offers visitors the opportunity to explore history through an original underground circuit leading through archaeological excavations. At the start of their visit, an immersive multimedia show presents a high-speed view of the city’s history, the remains come to life and the countdown begins! Inaugurated in May 2017, the exhibition “Where Montréal Began” invites visitors to walk on a glass floor above the vestiges for Fort Ville-Marie, the first habitation of Montréal. To get there, crossing the “Memory Collector” will capture all in a multi-sensorial experience, in the heart of the first sewer collector built in North America. Never before seen in Montréal! The museum also offers year-round temporary local and international exhibitions. See the website for rates schedules.
