It is a small but very beautiful building crammed with "stuff". They displays are very clustered together and not a large amount of cash was put into this important venue. If you are a historian maybe it holds treasures but as a passerbyer I flew...More

When the Europeans arrived circa 1600, Canada's lakes and steams were full of beavers, but they almost went extinct. How did that happen? This small museum tells the story well. It's free and well-suited for children. Our English-speaking grandson (8) was immediately immersed in gathering...More

This Canadian National Museum is free for 2017. We had a guide explain most of the key information; and then toured and read the materials. The pelts and stuffed animals alone make it worth a stop. The drawers in some of the back exhibits are...More

Lots of space to run around for young children. The museum tells the story of early settlers on the island of Montreal. The personnel are great with the children and are able to keep their interest. Even adults can learn a thing or two.

Knowledgeable guides to inform visitors of the beginning history of Canada and how it relates to the fur trade. Fascinating and a great intro upon entering the country. Consider yourself lucky if you happen to be assigned to Chantaille - personality plus and specific information....More
