All of the city's history comes together in one place. At the Centre d'histoire de Montréal, you'll find the keys for discovering Montreal's multiple identities. Three floors of permanent and temporary exhibits offer a rich experience of the eventful and sometimes turbulent adventures of Canada's first metropolis.
The ideal place to learn all there is to know about the living history of Montrealers through the ages! Our new permanent exhibition introduces you to Montreal, Five Times. Five stations focus on five key moments in time, presenting spectacular images and events that have marked our history betweeen 1535 and 2000!
Urban renewal projects of the 1950s and 1960s transformed the cityscape. The construction of Les Habitations Jeanne-Mance, the Radio-Canada tower, and the Bonaventure and Ville-Marie expressways destroyed huge sections of Montreal’s heritage. Delving into an exceptionally rich but little-known city collection of photographs of the houses, businesses and backyards bulldozed by modernization, this exhibition will revive the memory of vanished neighbourhoods and their residents. Personal testimony, collected by Centre d’histoire de Montréal, will make up a major portion of the exhibition.
An exhibition curated in collaboration with the City of Montreal Archives.
Montreal's famous symbol, Mount Royal, dominates the cityscape. The mountain's north face hasn't yet unveiled all its secrets. The exhibition reveals the treasures and mysteries of its history, and its cultural and natural heritage.
A Université de Montréal anniversary exhibition in collaboration with the Centre d'histoire de Montréal.
From the 1940s to the 1960s, Montreal bustted to the rhythm of its nightclubs and bashed under the neon glow of its cabarets.
The city's often smoldering night-life sometimes overflowed into the dark corners of illegal gambling dens or behind the curtains of brothels. Scandal ! Had Montreal really become a city of sin and corruption? Our inquiry sets out to shed some light on the matter.
