This was a fun museum to visit. It is well done and the history was interesting to learn. We were particularly fascinated with Benjamin Franklin's visit to Chateau Ramezay and to see his signature on a letter in the showcase. Glad we took the time to stop in and explore.

Pros: tons of information, mostly well done.
Cons:
-some of the more interactive stuff is limited due to covid
-first floor had 4 portraits/paintings of women: one spoke only of the male beside her, one had her tombstone data and spoke only of the painter who painted the portrait, and two had her name and spoke of her father and husband. Admittedly the basement had slightly better information about how women contributed but it's VERY limited.

This museum was very interesting to go through. Wonderful old artifacts. The lower section is dedicated to the old way of life absolutely wonderful. The main floor has some very old and interesting items such as an 18 century prayer book.

This Museum is a treasure. The gardens are free to enter and delightful providing a glimpse of how people relied on plants 400 years ago. The house has thick stone walls providing a very cool atmosphere on a warm summer day. Child friendly.

My husband and I, on our second trip to Montreal, decided to explore this museum. Friendly and helpful staff and lots of great history and artifacts. We liked how well laid out the whole museum was. We're glad the rain pushed us to explore this beautiful home, right in the heart of Old Town. We look forward to exploring its gardens in warmer weather.

One of the oldest buildings in town, displays the history of colonization. The building is not really beautiful, and the inside is kinda bland, except for the reception room which woodwork is great. The exhibition is well done, and the gardens as well as the cellars are worth a visit.

This is a wonderful, well organized way to learn the history of Montreal and the province of Quebec. Each room tells a story. Our guide was good though I would like to go through again with a different guide for a different perspective. We explored the basement which was very interesting as well. We did not visit the gardens. I am so glad we didn’t just walk by! Well worth our time.

Chateau Ramezay should be a historic site and Museum of Montreal. This mansion has wide artifacts since early settlement. Do visit the basement for interesting exhibits and the Governor's Garden as well.
