We were at the Ecomusee du Fier Monde for the wedding ceremony for my cousin and his partner this past May long weekend in Montreal.

While everything was in French, the receptionist was very helpful in giving an overview and translating major items. The building, a converted bath house, was very interesting.

This museum of working class history is located in a lovely converted art deco public baths. The permanent exhibit is in French (there is an English guide available) and charts the history of this working class neighbourhood. There was also an enjoyable temporary art exhibition featuring works by local artists. The building has been sympathetically converted and the museum staff... More

We visited this "Museum of the People" as part of our Via Rail Montreal Vacation with museum pass. It is located in a former bath house designed for the very poor factory workers in this now artesian neighborhood. Although there is little English, we had no trouble understanding the highly visual and artistic exhibits that revealed the lifestyle of the... More

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
